Guillotining and slitting are two sheet metal cutting processes, which produce long straight cuts and can be seen as stationary processes. The analysis of these two processes is the subject of this thesis. This research project is part of a cluster of IOP projects on sheet metal cutting, originating from industrial requests for more fundamental knowledge, as sheet metal cutting is still mainly based on experience and trial and error. The objective is to develop models of guillotining and slitting to increase the insight and to contribute to the quality and productivity of these shearing processes.
