Knifeholders for Slitters

Tidland Knifeholders are precision cutting tools, designed to reduce downtime between runs and provide the perfect cut, every time. Choose from the Performance Series for pneumatic operation or the revolutionary e-Knifeholder which requires no air.

Performance Series Knifeholders cut to the bottom line; faster set-ups, increased productivity, unrivaled finished roll quality. Available in three sizes to accommodate a wide range of slitting materials & web speed, for shear, crush and razor slitting. Used in most applications from very light converting to mill duty finishing operations.

Electronic Knifeholders take that precision one step further by eliminating the need for shop air and operator intervention during setup. Auto-calibration ensures that critical setting between the upper and lower knives are correct, so operators can spend less time with settings and more time managing the web.
