Our Custom Slitting Methods

Based on the material you need slit and your project’s needs, we’ll use one of three slitting techniques: razor cut, crush cut, or baloney tape slitting. If you’re unsure which method is best suited for your project, don’t worry. Our in-house experts will help you find the best technique to get the results you need.

Razor Cut Slitting

With razor cut slitting, one blade makes a precise cut. We use this technique on thinner materials, such as tapes and films. It’s a great way to get a highly accurate cut on thin materials.

Crush Cut Slitting

Crush cut slitting uses multiple knives to effectively cut materials that may be too thick for razor cutting, or which have varied thicknesses. We’re able to crush cut with a high level of accuracy on a wide range of materials.

Baloney Tape Slitting

The final technique is baloney tape slitting (also known as lathe or lever slitting). With baloney tape slitting, a single blade cuts continuously as the machine passes over a rolled log of material. This process allows cuts to be made without unrolling and re-rolling the material.
