The Economical HOT KNIFE Slitter Rewinder, or HSRE, is an affordable version of the HSR and built to handle the day-to-day production for materials requiring a sealed edge. Designed for low-medium usage, the design keeps the web path as short as possible to avoid any contaminants, scratching, or wrinkles that can be introduced to the web when traveling over numerous idler rollers. The HSRE is a large enough machine to include the capacity for additional features such as laminating, lay-on rollers, and edge guiding. This machine offers a wide range of options from additional slitting methods, different size shafting, roll widths to 98″, and any other options that are needed for specific materials. The HSRE machine has been configured to run various different materials from textiles, ribbon stock, sail cloth, and non-wovens.
