The last critical contact area rarely utilized is just prior to the nips.

Operational Benefits:

  • Full layflat contact chilling right before the nips
  • Chills both sides of the collapsed tube equally
  • Prevents film blocking
  • Eliminates the need for expensive anti-blocking additives
  • Available in 4, 6, and 8 slat versions
  • 10-20% increased output possible depending on process
  • Spreader feature on top slats assist in wrinkle removal prior to entering the nip rollers


Standard 4-Slat Pre-Nips pairs require only 9″ of vertical space on the collapsing frame. In most cases, you only remove the top three slats or rollers and install.
