MATERIAL SLITTING and ANALYSIS SERVICES
AVAILABLE TESTING METHODS Razor, Crush and Shear
WHAT TESTS CAN BE CONDUCTED Razor with tangential and/or wrapped web. Crush with tangential and/or wrapped web. Crush with various radii and support angles. Minimum Crush force determination. Shear with tangential and/or wrapped web. Shear with various blade bevels; single, double, double hollow bevel. Shear with various blade shearing angles; ¼°, ½° and ¾°, if necessary. Any of these test for comparison to each other. Any tests for comparison to your Design Intended or current production standards.
ANALYSIS AND WRITTEN REPORT All sample cut edges are examined under a microscope and photographed. A report is developed based upon your objectives for the slitting trials. These results are organized and prepared in both PDF and Power Point versions for your quick presentation as needed. Reports are normally provided within seven days of testing.
TEST MATERIAL NEEDED – Sheet or Rolls
Testing is conducted on small material samples or roll goods. Only two or three 8” x 10” samples are usually needed to obtain substantive slitting data. This greatly reduces the cost to evaluate different slitting methods, angles, shapes or force levels for your flexible web material.
Note: Running web slitting tests are also available, but in limited roll size; 10” dia. x 10” width. Pricing may vary depending on testing scope also.
Note: Your test materials do not leave my control and are all returned with test definition labels attached.
WHERE SLITTING TESTS ARE CONDUCTED Razor, Crush and Shear slitting tests are conducted anonymously in controlled Lab conditions at a prominent slitting company. The slitting company will not know who you or your companies are without permission.
LAB SLITTING TESTS COSTS My pricing covers local travel and consulting time based on your objectives. Lab use costs may apply and can vary depending on scope of testing. Sample mailing costs separate. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for typical report data and further information.
