The AFT milled slotted cylinder fits into applications where a stronger construction is more desirable. The milled design can also offer a broader range of materials of constructions.
A milled cylinder is manufactured from a rolled metal plate which has had slots machined or cut into the plate. The exact slot width, geometry and open area of this cylinder will be based on the screening requirements of the customer. After the milling operation, the plate is formed into a cylinder with care being taken to ensure the precision of the slots. The addition of chrome plating will improve wear resistance and extend cylinder life.
