Appleton Mfg Division Increases Safety And Cut Quality With Auto Indexing Knife

NEENAH, WI — May 28, 2010 — Appleton Mfg. Division’s patented Auto Indexing Knife maintains the
highest cut quality throughout all cuts, significantly extends the life of the core cutter knife,
and reduces operator interaction with the blade. This easy-to-install retro-fit and upgrade extends
the life of the blade by providing more usable cutting surface per knife. By automatically indexing
the knife to a new cutting edge and setting the number of cuts between blade indexes, Appleton’s
knife indexer limits the operator’s handling time of the blade to replacements only, which
minimizes change-over downtime, as well as operator interaction with the knife.

Appleton Mfg. Division is a fully integrated engineering, design, sales, service and
manufacturing firm producing custom and semi-custom material handling solutions. Dedicated to
