Catbridge Machinery designs and manufactures durable, innovative slitter rewinders that maximize productivity. Our Model 344 FP dual turret, for example, outproduces conventional winders by 200-300% or more in some applications. The new Model 324 FP turret takes a fresh approach to flexible packaging slitting, reducing downtime between sets to 20 to 30 seconds. Other models offer exceptional versatility, such as our Model 902 center winder which does the job of two machines, offering duplex slitting as well as large diameter roll log winding.
