Maxson Automatic Machinery Company has developed a vacuum system for its sheeter that is said to remove dust at the slitters. The system “ensures the cleanliness of sheeted stock and minimizes ‘hickies’ (dust related defects) at the printing press,” says the company.
The slitter dust removal system is said to be particularly effective when converting high bulk board substrates or multiple webs of coated papers, eliminating debris buildup caused by the slitting action.
The suction is applied at the point of slitting removing the debris from the slit edge. The sheet metal bonnets enclose all but the contact edge of the top slitter blade and bottom slitter ring. Flexible hosing from each slitter is joined to a common manifold that is piped to a blower and duct collection box. The operator’s lateral positioning of the slitters and setting the depth penetration of the upper slitters is not impeded, says Maxson.
