No split decision – it's fortuna

Splitting machines accurately split material to thinner dimensions and can split a thick material into many thinner pieces. Used by the automotive, rubber, plastic industries, and leather goods industries. They are predominantly featured in laboratories for rubber and plastic industries, but also used in production operations for leather and automotive uses. The Hudson line of Fortuna machines function within ultra-fine tolerances and are used in situations where the highly precise separation of materials is an absolute must.
