Keep downtime to a minimum when changing from one bar pitch to another, with PTL’s cleverly designed slitter head, anvil, and other parts. It takes one operator less than 10 minutes to safely make the change, using the built-in mechanism. Choose slit-on-anvil, slit-on-belt, or a unit that can be changed from one to the other. Slitters can be equipped with live slab tracking to control, reduce, and even eliminate edge trim, while blades can be temperature-controlled to reduce product buildup.


PTL lane spreaders are endless polyolefin belts that accurately separate the bars after slitting. The units are designed for fast changeovers and easy cleaning with a removable head, common base frame and drive, polyolefin coating, and full wash-down capability. The machinery has been refined over decades to reduce buildup, wear, and maintenance, making it easier to
change bar widths.

Our guillotines are a little bit out of the ordinary. They have ultrasonics to stop product from sticking to the blade. This delivers clean, accurate, and consistent cuts, and organized product rows for downstream equipment. Removable belt carriages allow thorough cleaning and drying, fast changeover, and simple maintenance. Our non-ultrasonic guillotine blades are made from highly polished stainless steel.
