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.
CGR can split (skive) sheets or rolls of sponge rubber from 25-250 feet long, up to 56″ wide, and up to 10″ thick. We can split materials down to .062” thick with normal tolerances held to RMA standards.
