Slitting Kaizen Analysis

“Kaizen” is a Japanese term meaning “change for the better” or “continuous improvement.” It is a Japanese business philosophy regarding the processes that continuously improve operations and involve all employees.

Our passion is to help you improve slitting quality, minimize downtime and maximize operator safety. With the Kaizen analysis, we offer comparative data and verifiable improvements in cutting quality, adjustability, handling, increased tool life and process reliability with sample knife holders.

Stay on Top

With the help of this analysis procedure, we record all factors relevant to an optimum cutting result for you, identify the areas of opportunity in your work processes and actively contribute to solving these problems.

DIENES provides you with expert tool selection and optimization of set-up parameters to increase the service life of your slitting tools and improve cutting edge quality. In addition, the overall analysis provides information on the use of the optimum knife material, measures to reduce setup times, and systems for fast and accurate slitting width adjustment.

Analysis Focus

The quality of the cutting edge and the service life of the knives depend to a large extent on the set-up parameters to which each knife is set. To achieve the best cut and the smallest cutting burr, there is an optimum knife setting for each knife size and material type. Optimum cutting quality can only be achieved with the right tools and systems, which we will recommend depending on your application. Through the Kaizen analysis, a target/actual comparison of the relevant influencing factors is carried out on site.

Our Kaizen analysis offers the following services:
