Model 450 SL

In-line slitter choppers increase safety and productivity.

This chopper is a customized version of the standard Model 450, designed specifically to operate within a slitter edge trimming production line. This unit typically features two Model 450 SL Scrap Choppers that sit on a common stand and independently accommodate both sides of trim simultaneously, as it is being produced. Slitter line scrap choppers eliminate the need for a scrap winder and increase production and employee safety. Custom stands and additional safety upgrades are also available.

Material Reference

Our History

It all started with an imported gang saw. After WWII, three brothers from Germany migrated to the United States and built a sawmill on Galls Creek in Gold Hill, Oregon. Dissatisfied with the imported gang saw they were using, they decided they could make a better saw themselves.
