Why Work With Universal Converting Equipment?

Here are just some of the reasons why our customers choose our Slitters:

  • Substantial construction
    Our machines utilise substantial, cross-braced frames, precision bored as a pair. The rollers are aluminium tubes precisely machined and balanced.
  • Simple operation
    Adjustable parameters have been minimised, so an operator can be trained in just a few hours. We believe our slitters are about as simple to operate as a duplex centre-wind slitter can be.
  • Worldwide support
    Same-day support is available by telephone, and additionally, Internet support is available. Service engineers are normally available within 48 hours
  • UK Designed and built
    We design and build our range of converting equipment in the UK
  • Customer Support
    We consider our relationship with all clients to be an ongoing and constantly evolving process

Universal produces a range of hot melt adhesive coating and laminating equipment. Using our partnership with ITW Dynatec, we are able to offer the latest in high speed application technologies. Hot melt adhesive coaters are used widely in the manufacture of label stock, medical, security and non-woven products. Hot melt coating and laminating machines are compact, low energy systems compared to solvent and water based adhesive systems.

In addition to building slitter rewinders and converting machinery we also design and develop automation systems and control systems (and upgrades) for third party machinery. Our expertise and efficiency helps you minimise downtime, reduce job set-up lag and increase profits.
