Slitting machine is widely used to slit paper, plastic film, and metal foils. For slitting soft material, circular or straight blades can be used. Two cylindrical rolls with matching grooves and ribs are used for hard materials such as sheet metal to cut a large roll into multiple small rolls. Slitting machine is widely used in converters. It is commonly used in those industries where material printing, coating, and lamination happens. In addition, slitting machine is cost effective and provide maximum efficiency. Furthermore, the Slitting machine is also used in the packaging industry to slit the plastic rolls into narrower rolls which are then used on the packaging machine.
The key driving factor of the global slitting machine is increasing automation in packaging industry along with increasing health consciousness among consumers. The macroeconomic factors are driving the global slitting machine market such as growing economy, increasing per capita income and rapid rate of urbanization in emerging countries such as China, Brazil, Mexico, and India. The growth of the global slitting machine market is driven by growing demand for slitting machine in metal cutting and increasing investments in the food industry. In addition, rapidly growing paper, as well as plastic industry, is also one the key driving factor to grow the slitting machine market across the globe.
The key restraining factor which restricts to grow the global slitting machine market is the safety regulations related to slitting machine market.
