Custom Slitting and Splitting

Slitting and splitting are shearing operations used to cut large rolls or sheets into narrower or thinner rolls or sheets.

CGR Products slits a variety of materials utilizing the technology of displacement slitting (more commonly known as baloney slitting), a process whereby rolled materials are automatically slit without unwinding/rewinding. CGR splits/skives materials utilizing a Fecken-Kirfel Loop Skiver.

At CGR, we can process rolls up to 60 inches wide and slit to custom widths as narrow as .25”.  Our equipment can process a variety of materials, including paper, felt, tape, and both open and closed cell foam. We can supply the material or work with yours — it’s up to you.

Below are two examples of our material slitting and splitting capabilities:

Sponge Rubber Splitting

CGR can split (skive) sheets or rolls of sponge rubber from 25-250 feet long, up to 56 inches wide, and up to 5 inches thick. We can split materials down to .062” thick with tolerances of 0.030” on most materials and .015” on firmer materials.

We stock a variety of closed cell sponge rubber, sponge stripping, and closed cell sponge with pressure sensitive adhesive.
