VDI offers customized slitting and rewinding both pre- and post-metallization. Our slitting machines can handle up to 80-inch-wide master rolls and we can cut to a minimum cut width of 4 inches.
Pre-metallization slitting and rewinding refers to the process of cutting and rewinding a roll of material that has not yet been coated with a metallic layer. This process is typically used in the production of electronic devices or other products that require a metallic layer.
After the pre-metallization slitting and rewinding process, the material is typically coated with a metallic layer using a vacuum deposition technique, such as thermal evaporation or sputter deposition. This is known as the metallization process.
Post-metallization slitting and rewinding refers to the process of cutting and rewinding a roll of material that has already been coated with a metallic layer. This process is typically used to prepare the material for further processing or to create rolls of the material that are a specific size or shape.
Both pre- and post-metallization slitting and rewinding involve using specialized equipment to cut the material into the desired size or shape and then rewinding it onto a roll. These processes are important in the production of many products, as they allow for the precise control of the size and shape of the material and ensure that it is ready for further processing or use.
