Heskins Limited UK services
A part of our business is contract production and converting for industries unrelated to our own, we offer a full conversion facility.
As part of our production facility for our flooring tape we possess a large amount of advanced and often-unique machinery, obviously operated by our skilled, motivated and experienced colleagues, they include;
We can convert flexible roll based products into flat sheets; fully computerised PLC based systems control the machinery to ensure accuracy within very tight tolerances.
Our custom designed and manufactured crush cut sheeter that we used to sheet our non slip floor materials can even work with very thick and tough products that other sheeters cannot handle.
The cutting method we use on our flooring tape is the toughest slitting method for flexible products, able to cut virtually anything. For our non slip floor tape the only method that can effectively slit is crush cutting, it will work with many awkward and difficult flexible materials.
We can accommodate widths upto 1.4m wide and can slit down to 9mm wide (dependent on product stability).
We possess various types of die cutters from intricate double die station rotaries to large scale, high tonnage flat beds able, used on our flooring tape, to produce bespoke sizes and shapes, we can make any size from 1mmx1mm to 825mm x 1550mm, accurate to within 0.2mm. We can also provide these kiss cut.
Single knife slitting
Single knife slitting is a very cost effective way of converting logs into slit rolls, able to slit down to 2mm widths with an accuracy of within 0.05mm.
We operate using the British ALS S-Tec machine; the S-Tec provides tremendous computer controlled tolerances and high volume output capabilities. Some of our non abrasive non slip floor materials are slit this way.
