At ICE Europe 2017, which will kick off on 21 March, DIENES Werke für Maschinenteile GmbH & Co. KG, a leading slitting technology supplier based in Overath, Germany, will present a new knife holfer of the DS series. The new DIENES DS 4 is characterized by its compact dimensions and is said to offer an unmatched level of stability. This is due to the unique DIENES honeycomb structure, which allows a design that reduces vibration in the holder housing. The result: extreme durability and outstanding accuracy, even when cutting narrow widths from 22mm and, in the nested model, from 19mm, and speeds of up to 1200m/min.

Whether slitting paper, foil, non-woven or non-ferrous metal foil – the DS 4 quick-change head is versatile and convenient to use for both feed directions and the widest range of cutting jobs. Razor-blade and crush-cut knife heads can also be used as an option.A further advantage: the unique cutting pressure adjustment ensures balanced distribution of force and guarantees an even cut. The DS 4 also raises the bar with the superior ball bearing guide elements, ensuring low friction coefficients thanks to the tightest tolerances. In addition, the knife holder has a patented adjusting slide that enables the holder position to be reproduced exactly. The shear angle can be adjusted using a plate on the retainer. The DS 4 knife head has a 360° hand guard and can be detached and replaced, thus saving time and making it easy to service.
