LEXIBLE - Different size spacer configurations allow customized ganging over the 12" throat - maximum of 10 cuts. No cutter Sets are included with this machine. Please order part number M01-MLS-12CA seperately. Additional Spacers and cutting heads may be added later up to the maximum. the throat is open ended, allowing you to either cut from a larger sheet or use sized pieces for an extra "drop" cut. Some customers choose to order additional setups on other sets of shafts. Cutting Widths are changed by removing the shaft and resetting spacers on top and bottom shafts. some setups will require additional spacers.
•EFFICIENT - the gang throat can be utilized to rapidly produce straight banding. The machine will tirelessly slit your material to size, only requiring the operator to initially align the stock against the fence as the blades will self feed the material once it is engaged.
•COST EFFECTIVE - once "snapped" in on the machine's operation, relatively unskilled labor can operate the slitter and free up saw(s) for tasks they are better designed for. The Mar-Bel slitter owner will also experience noticeable economies in sharpening costs: due to the unique cutting technology of the die used to slit laminate, blade wear is minimal......the quality of the cut will not gradually deteriorate as you can expect from the common aluminum shear (two blade) device. In addition, the three-bladed die won't give you a beveled edge as shears tend to do as they dull. Expect fewer lineal feet when cutting metallics. The blades can normally be sharpened 4-7 times when serviced properly. Our renowned factory sharpening staff (30 yrs plus experience) ensures that the blades are checked for sufficient OD and we provideprompt in-house turnaround. All of the above spell substantial savings in terms of sharpening costs and unneeded circular blades.
•TOLERANCE - cut edges are specified to within 1/32" of a straight edge once the operator properly aligns the material to the fence.
•DUST FREE - No dust collection required. 1/16" kerf is disposed of via the free floating extractor blades

Mar-Bel Associates and its predecessors have manufactured machinery for the laminate industry since 1958. The equipment has a well deserved reputation for the reliability and customer support. For these reasons it is found in the quality control, research, or operations departments of such industry giants as FORMICA® Corporation, NEVAMAR®, Ralph Wilson Plastics' WILSONART® division, and WESTVACO®. it is easily found in two employee shops because of its versatility and value pricing. The Mar-Bel slitter is manufactured as originally configured by U.S. Patent #3,496,812. It is technically a die which punches out a 1/16" kerf. This multiple slitting model is designed to provide its owner with maximum throughput of accurate, smooth-edged laminate product over the range of cutting widths allowed by the cutting configuration selected. the cutting configuration is developed by mixing/matching spacers along the top and bottom arbors. The machine will slit over a variety of thicknesses, easily slitting vertical or countertop grades without adjustment for variation in material thickness.
