The British polythene manufacturer Polystar Plastics will install a brand new slitter from German supplier Kampf. The company expects that this new machine of the Conslitter CHRO BlackLine type will enable them to achieve faster, more versatile and precise results than ever before.

The Conslitter CHRO BlackLine

The ConSlitter CHRO BlackLine is especially designed to process particularly sensitive materials on a two-spindle machine with a high degree of automation. Thanks to the linear winding system, materials can be processed effectively at higher web speeds. Special equipment options such as automatic cross splicing, cross cutting/laying and a pneumatic single contact roll system are possible. The combination of an optional automatic slitting section with automatic core positioning also offers further set-up advantage. Simplified machine operation, optimum accessibility and integrated safety are combined by a completely new shape and colour concept.


The intuitive Kampf-2-touch operation is also part of the eye-catching industrial design, same as the newly designed work areas and the trend-setting handling and digitization solutions. Behind the new shape of the ConSlitter is the latest Siemens control system combined with precise drive and controls technology along with proven mechanical engineering.
