The curved and conical slitter KSA is one of the most outstanding developments from Forstner. The KSA cuts a sheet or coil in stripes by circular knives similar to a cross cutting slitter AL. The cutting edge is clean, burr-free and without any hardening compared to plasma or laser cut. The KSA can produce max. 5 parallel, conical or curved stripes at the same time. You can use the KSA as a stand alone machine for sheets as well as an integrated part of a coil processing line. Sheet metal parts can be automatically produced after programming on a graphic surface of the touch panel. The software offers standard programs for the ventilation and insulation industry like segment arch, Zeppelin and tier. Each product can be selected, dimensioned and automatically produced. The system also offers a free dimensioning of parallel, conical, concave or convex parts by entering the width at certain lengths of the sheet which is very interesting for long and special metal roofing parts too.



The stand alone equipment can be made even more efficient by connecting it to a CAD-CAM system. You can also download DXF files and the KSA produces the parts without further programming.
The straightening and cut to length line RM-AL ensures precise and rapid blanks plus excellent straightening quality from coil in the least possible floor space.
The straightening and cut to length line RM-TS ensures precise and rapid blanks plus excellent straightening quality from coil in the least possible floor space.
This combination of traditional Forstner machines perfected over the years has become a classic in the sheetmetal-working industry:



deflection rollers RT
table with manually adjustable coil guidance TI

slitter MST
electric cut to length slitter AL e
control SPS-M2 POTI



Other combinations of Forstner slitters, shears and controls are also available. The entire system can be tailored to individual requirements.



Any decoiler can be used:
No matter which version you choose, the infeed table of the slitting and cut to length line will have one fixed and one adjustable edge guide, allowing coils up to 1000, 1250 or 1500 mm width to be handled.
The feed mechanism is strong enough to accommodate sheet from coils up to 5000 kg, even when the decoiler itself is not powered.



We recommend the use of fixed unrollers or decoilers in front of all lines to prevent problems of aligning.

Wenn Sie schon immer von einer vollautomatischen Richt-, Längs- und Querteilanlage auf höchstem Qualitätsniveau geträumt haben, dann lesen Sie jetzt mehr über die Forstner Richt-, Längs- und Querteilanlage | PT01 1250.
Ein langer Führungstisch mit stabilen, präzisen Führungen garantiert maßgenaue Zuschnitte auch nach Jahren. Das Bandblech wird dabei über Umlenkrollen kratzfrei zugeführt und von mitdrehenden Rollen sehr genau geführt. Ein Verlaufen des Bandes und dadurch Ungenauigkeiten gibt es somit nicht.
Sheetmetal fabricators are confronted with so many different types of sheet every day that no well-organized business should be without a multiple decoiling line.



Our objectives in developing this line were:



rapid sheet change-over
simple operation
retrofitting
lower acquisition costs
one-person operation
space-saving

The efficient production of blanks requires keeping a wide range of entirely different coils on hand. To allow rapid access to different sheets, we developed a multiple decoiling system featuring automatic sheet change-over in less than 1 minute.



Our objectives in developing this line were:



fully automatic sheet change-over in the shortest possible time
manual upper straightening shafts adjustment
manual adjustment of slitting knives
the simplest possible operating
retrofitting
lower acquisition costs
one-worker operation
space savings



The Forstner fully-automatic decoiling, slitting and cut to length line offers features that an industrial production manager has only dreamed about. This line fulfills the demanding requirements of any sheet metal working industry.



Two to max six powered, cantilever, manually expandable decoilers provide all advantages for efficient loading by fork lift, crane or scissor coil car and decoil or recoil your coils smoothly.

The sheet metal guide-lanes facilitate feeding the sheet into the powered coil selector and prevent damage to the surface of the coils. The guideways are non-powered but guarantee the recoiling of your valuable material.

The coil change-over from one material to another is a fully automatic function of the coil selector and can easily be done by one operator. Changing from one coil width to the other is also an automatic process with the help of the powered edge-guide MFA.

Whenever a new coil is selected, the upper straightening shafts must be adjusted manually into a new position to ensure the straightening quality. The coil-set is eliminated. Marks or lines from the upper straightening shafts can only be prevented by opening the upper straightening shafts during the standstill using the optional programmable straightener with sensitive material mode. We propose the programmable straightener when you are going to process sensitive material for high-quality and visible end products.

The heart of this line is the slitter with manual knife adjustment and scrap prevention. All assembled knives are positioned in a short time efficiently and the upper knives are deactivated for cutting to length only or for scrap prevention.

Fast, burr less and precise cuts from the electric guillotine shear are achieved throughout the long life-time of this line.

The control makes the operation of the line a pleasure. The advanced control SPS-F2 version is outstanding not only for reliability, flexibility and precision but especially for ease of operation and unbeatable results. You can see easy understandable and logic symbols instead of text on the touch panel. An external programming can optionally be realized as well. More options for example remote control for decoilers and coil car, remote maintenance are often used by the industry.

The efficient production of blanks for profiles and flashings requires keeping a wide range of entirely different coils on hand. To allow rapid access to different coils, we developed a multiple decoiling system featuring automatic sheet changeover.



Forstner guarantees simplest loading of coils on cantilever or drop in decoilers, easy infeeding of various coils over guideways, automatic coil change-over of max. 9 different coils by the vertically adjustable coil selector MTV, optional plastic film sticking on sheets, manual or programmable straightening and accurate slitting and cutting to length of all type of materials in different widths and lengths directly from coil. You can expect straight blanks, free of burrs and free of marks.



The latest Forstner control ensures simplest and safest operation of the line. The operation of the line is a children’s game because of self-explanatory symbols on the full colour 9” touch panel. The standard software of the control offers numerous useful functions for example coil and machine management.
