Achenbach OPTIFOIL®

JumboSlit® Slitter

Achenbach slitting machines type JumboSlit serve for slitting thin aluminium as well as copper and brass foils or compound materials to small strips of minimum 10 mm width; they are tailored to the specific operation purpose. 

For each new foil slitting machine or those to be modernized, a holistic approach to perfectly sychronize mechanics, hydraulics, automation and drive technology in their complex interaction is applied.
