Tidland Wins AIMCAL Tech Award


CAMAS, WA | Tidland, a global supplier of slitting and winding solutions for the web handling industry, was recently awarded the 2015 Assn. of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL) Technical Excellence Award for its 360 Degree Blade Guard.

Praised as a simple solution to operator safety, AIMCAL awarded the blade guard for its automatic action, eliminating the possibility of guard placement being overlooked when the knifeholder is off the machine.

“When we designed our e-Knifeholder and 360 Degree Blade Guard, we stepped back and asked ourselves how we could make it safer for operators and minimize their risk of being cut,” says Sean Craig, general manager for Tidland. “Our solution was a 360 Degree Blade Guard that completely covers the blade when it’s retracted away from the anvil so there’s no risking an operator cutting themselves on a very sharp knife blade.”

The Guard is standard on all e-Knifeholders and available as a retrofit for company's Performance Series Knifeholders.
