Suitable for most slitting applications, the 548BK Cardinal is mounted in a stationary position where the fabric moves past the blade. The BK machines can be equipped with a standard roller base plate or with mounting brackets that allow the machine to be mounted for overhead support. The standard narrow profile allows for clean slitting and snag-free material flow. All Eastman machines are built with the highest quality materials available.

May be mounted in a stationary position, on a frame or with a standard baseplate for slitting
