What Do People Use a Roll Slitter For?

There are a variety of uses for one of these GemFix machines. 

Often, purchasing a high-quality roll slitting machine will help increase productivity and reduce material costs because you can buy in bigger, more cost effective rolls, then cut them down yourself.

And the XC line is perfect for this. 

A slitter machine uses a large, circular blade to cut through a roll of material such a paper or vinyl.

GEMfix XC cutter machines can both cut down through the core of rolls or convert the roll into sheets of various sizes.

Roll to Sheet Cutter Machine and Roll Slitter and Uses:

Thinking of starting or expanding a business? Here are a few ideas to get you started. Investing in a quality roll to sheet cutter machine can:

  • Make and create retail products from material such as rolls of transfer paper, opaque and glitter vinyl, fabric, plastic and bubble wrap, and backings and foam core. 

  • Produce packs of stickers or labels for retail or distribution.

  • Create vinyl transfers for textiles, signs, or fabrics. 

  • Add gems to fabrics to become part of this growing retail industry.

  • And so many more possibilities!

Cutting Down Heat Transfer Vinyl

One good example is that a business that sells vinyl transfers ALSO sells small, Cricut-sized, sheets of HTV for hobbyists in the area. 

They might buy a 15” X 5 Yard roll of Triton heat transfer vinyl and then cut it into 12” or 10” pieces for resale. The big rolls may cost under $40, but the single sheets can sell for as much as $5.00 EACH!

For these basic cutting functions and HTV production techniques, the affordable GEMfix roll cutter machine 60XC is a popular and effective option. The 60XC cutter machine is priced at $5,695.
