High Speed Slitting of a Neoprene Sponge Roll for the Filtration Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
A filtration industry client was in need of custom fabricated HEPA filters for one of their product lines. G.F. Cole Corporation was contracted to perform the required work, which consisted of laminating and high speed slitting. We utilized our precision single blade slitter to slit the neoprene sponge roll to .75" wide by 50' length rolls. Widths tolerances were cut to tolerances of +/- .010. Various widths were required and ranged in size from 0.125" to 58",all were cut to tolerances of ±.010". We also provided a pressure sensitive adhesive backing to permanently laminate the sponge. Quality of the lamination was verified by adhesive bond peel testing. Dimensional inspection with calipers was also carried out and documented to assure accuracy.
We process 75,000' of product annually for this customer, which includes cleaning and storage for JIT deliveries. High speed slitting is just one of the fabrication processes we use to create customized parts for our wide range of clients, holding to strict industry standards. We specialize in thorough customer service, excellent quality, and competitive pricing.
