JT-SLT-900 Thermal Roll Slitting Machine

JT-SLT-900 thermal roll slitting machine is always Jota Machinery’s best selling product, not only because it is an economical model, but its quality is also high, the price is competitive. So, Egypt’s big customer K.M.S Group also purchased this machine.

Egypt big client K.M.S group

K.M.S Group’s choice fully proves that Jota Machinery is a reliable automatic thermal paper roll slitting machine supplier, you could trust us without any fear. K.M.S Group chose JT-SLT-900 mainly because this model has some attractive selling points.

In the unwinding section, JT-SLT-900 POS paper slitting rewinding machine applies a motor-driven chain, it is able to lift up and down thermal paper jumbo roll automatically, ensures jumbo roll loading and exchanging is much easier, greatly saves operator labor.

3″ Air Expanding Shaft

As parent roll decreases in size, unwinding shaft’s driving torque decreases at a linear ratio. With electromagnetic brake installed on both sides of unwinding shaft, it is useful for torque compensation, makes sure thermal paper slitter rewinder keeps constant tension while working.

Electromagnetic Brake

Constant tension is the most important factor for thermal paper slitting rewinder. In order to detect real-time web tension, JT-SLT-900 cash register paper slitters machine equips with 2 closed-loop load cell sensors.

Tension data feeds back to the tension controller for processing, then reports to Siemens PLC, PLC sends the command to electromagnetic brake for execution.

Tension Controller

Siemens PLC

In the slitting section, JT-SLT-900 thermal roll slitting machine introduces shear cutting, proactive lower circular knife, and slave upper circular knife, leads to the minimum or no kerf, effectively minimizes waste.

Proactive Lower Circular Knife and Slave Upper Circular Knife

In the rewinding section, JT-SLT-900 cash register paper slitting machine utilizes an automatic tail tucking system for a quick start, significantly reduces the time gaps from startup to winding beginning, effectively improves production efficiency.

Automatic Tucker

In order to avoid overlapping problems during the rewinding process, the lay-on roller is installed in the JT-SLT-900 cash register paper slitting rewinding machine. Without any overlapping problems for small roll, material waste also could be avoided.

Lay-on Roller

During communication with our previous clients, some of them request us to develop rewinding tightness adjustment function, so our engineers creatively add a precision regulator to JT-SLT-900 POS paper slitting rewinding machine, these clients are really satisfied with a shiny smile now.

We offer 500mm, 900mm and 1400mm unwinding width thermal paper roll slitting machine, 900mm is the most basic model, practical and efficient.

Why does the thermal paper roll overlap during the winding process?

2 aspects:

On the one hand, there are some thermal paper slitting machines whose design is not reasonable enough, so the paper rolls will bite each other, wasting materials and increasing costs;

On the other hand: the operator does not know enough about the machine itself, and is not familiar with the control of tension and pressure, which causes paper biting during the winding process. These problems can be solved after familiar with machine operation.

In the past years, many customers have this problem, we have conducted in-depth research and optimization, Jota machine does not have this problem.

Does the thermal roll slitting machine need an automatic tension control system?

The automatic tension control system is very important for the thermal paper rolls slittin machine, because the machine often needs to accelerate and decelerate at high speed during the operation, and the tension must be consistent at all times.

The automatic tension control system ensures that the material tension is always consistent in the process of the machine running.

Does the thermal roll slitting machine need PLC and touch screen?

Many years ago, our slitting machine did not have PLC and touch screen, so it needs to install a lot of time relay and solid-state relay. With PLC and touch screen, the operation is simpler and the machine failure rate is also reduced.

Can the efficiency of producing small rolls thermal paper be improved?

The standard working speed of our machine is 110m/min, the maximum speed is 160m/min. The length of a small roll of thermal paper is only 15m, which limits the maximum speed performance.

When producing some 80×80 rolls, the speed can be increased to 160m/min.

But once the speed of the machine is fast, and the wear of the accessories is also fast, which affects the life cycle of the machine.
