Rewind & Lathe Slitting

Not every job calls for a product that is stock width supplied by the manufacturer. When you need a tape, foil, film, or laminate cut to a specific custom width, call on McKeown to get the job done right the first time. With both rewind and lathe slitting available, we can use the perfect method for the job at hand each and every time. Our experienced team will work with you to find the right slitting solution based on the specific material and tolerances in question.

Rewind slitting is often the right choice when small tolerances are in play. We are able to cut products to extremely accurate widths (and lengths) when using the rewind slitting method. There are a number of different rewind slitting techniques available, such as razor cut slitting and score slitting, and we will use the one which best suits the needs of your project.


Lathe slitting is also an option when working with McKeown, and the process is completed exactly as the name ‘lathe’ would indicate. A roll of the product in question will be spun at high speed against a circular blade, which will cut the product the exact specified width. We can customize both the width and length of the product when lathe slitting, so you will be left with pieces that match your specs perfectly.

The capability to rewind or lathe slit tapes, foils, films, and laminates is probably not something you have in house – so work with McKeown to get the job done correctly. Not only do we have the advanced technical knowledge to complete this work, we also have the capability to turn it around quickly so you can keep your projects on schedule.

If you have any questions about the process of rewind or lathe slitting, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at your convenience. We look forward to hearing from you!
