Back Slitting/Kiss Cutting Overview

The processes known as back slitting or kiss cutting is the process whereby the paper liner of pressure sensitive stock is precisely slit to create a 'crack and peel' product for easy removal of the liner leaving the label or pressure sensitive sticker ready for adhering to the desired surface. 

Rollem’s advanced SS Semi-Slitting technology allow you to back or face-slit stocks with the highest degree of accuracy and control over the depth of the cut on all types of pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA).  A 2.5” hardened concentric roller stabilizes and supports the width of any sheet. This positive control eliminates high and low cutting points ensuring precision and consistency.

With our superior stability and control, you can slit any material from fine paper stocks to heavy gauge plastics, with the same accuracy—sheet after sheet. With a margin of accuracy within 1/10,000th of an inch and speeds up to 26,000 sheets per hour, the Champion SS guarantees higher profits on all your partial slitting needs.

The SS is the top choice of sign and label companies to kiss-cut cut sheet labels and stickers with models ranging from 18" wide up to 42" wide for a variety of wide format outputs. 

The Double Head model is configured with a two shaft design allowing for one shaft of semi-slitting and the second shaft for scoring, perforating or slitting heads. The double head models offers these added functions if needed.
