What are top and bottom slitters?

A top and bottom slitter are blades that cut materials into smaller, more manageable pieces. BAUCOR® manufactures and delivers many top and bottom slitters, each designed to handle specific materials and sizes.

Top and bottom slitters can cut various materials, including paper, plastic, metal, and wood. These machines are often used in the printing industry to help reduce the size of larger papers.

Baucor manufactures and supplies literally thousands of both standard and custom top and bottom circular slitter knives and rotary slitting blades for most applications. Whether you need a top and bottom or dished circular blade or a blade with toothed, serrated, scalloped, perforation and saw tooth forms, or even more complex tooth forms, Baucor can turn your design into a blade in just days. It doesn't matter if it's paper cutting, food slicing, packaging, rubber converting, meat chopping, film cutting or foil converting, regardless of its use, our circular knives and blades are exceptionally made from quality ground hardened tool steels and stainless steel as well as carbide.

Advantages of using top and bottom slitters

There are many advantages of using top and bottom slitters:

  • Increased Productivity:
    Slitters can significantly increase productivity compared to other cutting methods, such as saws because they can quickly and accurately make many cuts.

  • Cost-Effective:
    They require fewer human resources and are less likely to produce waste material.

  • Easy to operate:
    People with a wide range of skills can use slitters.

How top and bottom slitters are manufactured?

  • Cutting:
    Top and bottom slitters are manufactured by stamping or CNC laser cutting a sheet of metal depending on the shapes and use of the final blades. 

  • Heating:
    After cutting the blades' shapes according to their use, they undergo a series of heat treatment processes that harden and temper the metal and give it strength and durability.

  • Sharpening:
    After the blades are treated, they are sharpened to remove any imperfections. Next, a grinding process is used to refine their edges and make them even sharper. 

  • Coating:
    The tips of the top and bottom slitters can be coated with chromium or tungsten to help improve their resistance to wear or corrosion.
