Tissue Manufacturer Improves Cut Quality with Mario Cotta “Gold” Series

The Double E Company has worked closely with many customers over the years regarding solutions to slitting dilemmas. Recently a customer in the tissue industry came to Double E looking to upgrade from the tried and true Mario Cotter PPS model to a newer knife holder. The customer was able to get many years of service from the PPS but dust was starting to build up due to the excessive cant angle on the holders and worn out multi‐groove anvils. Another problem was that the holders were located inside their Fabio Prerini Slitter/Rewinder machine with very limited
access and they needed a holder that provided easier blade changes. Double E introduced the customer to the "Gold" series knife holder by Mario

The production manager agreed to purchase a Gold series holder for a brief trial period. Since the customer was upgrading to a newer Mario Cotta device, the drop‐in replacement was effortless. The production manager was intrigued by the knife holder's mounting flexibility and once the production line started using the device, he soon realized the benefits of the error‐free cant angle adjustment and the blade guard safety feature. The line operators found it easier than ever before to replace blades…because the simple cartridge system allows them to pull one out and replace it without tools.

The production manager was so pleased with the "Gold" series knife holder that he immediately outfitted his entire production line with "Gold" series knife holders and multi‐groove anvils. These Mario Cotta holders save time, yield unparalleled cut quality, and alleviate the dust issue. He also has the peace of mind of knowing that parts availability and product support are never a problem with Mario Cotta.
