MST

Forstner is a world wide leader in slit and cut-to-length systems, located in Feldkirch, Austria. Forstner continues the lead the way with innovative technology to meet the most demanding applications.

The MST series are massive all in one slitting and cut-to-length systems

  • The infeed guide roller are angled to match the loop of the coil from a decoiler. This helps prevent creasing on soft material like copper, aluminium and zinc.
  • The infeed guide has four roller bearings (two on each side) to guide the metal in the pinch rolls.
  • The pinch rolls pull the material evenly from a decoiler without slipping or twisting. Plastic film can be applied smoothly and evenly with the fully rubberized rolls.
  • The electronic eye eliminates the need for a zero cut if the material is square. The eye senses the material and sets the position allowing you to immediately start running your jobs.
  • The infeed guide adjustment handle is located on the CNC control side and allows for easy adjustment of the infeed guide.
  • Encoder features a rubberized wheel that sits on top of the coil that passes through the machine. The tension spring allows constant contact of the encoder with the coil for consistent and accurate lengths.
