RE: The tariff classification of a slitting machine from Italy

Dear Mr. Kenny:

In your letter dated July 19, 1999 on behalf of Ideal Tape Co. you requested a tariff classification ruling.

With your inquiry you submitted descriptive information on the Guzzetti model TSG 330 S.R. automatic slitting machine used in the production of adhesive tapes for retail sale or industrial use. This machine is designed to continuously unwind a master roll of adhesive stock, slit the material at designated widths, and wind the slit stock onto individual cores one to three inches in diameter. The machine incorporates a programmable logic controller and electronic meter counter, and features an adjustable razor blade cutting system which allows it to cut either the adhesive or non-adhesive side of the stock. It is capable of cutting plastic, textile, and various other kinds of adhesive materials.

The applicable subheading for the TSG 330 S.R. slitting machine will be 8479.89.9797, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for machines and mechanical appliances having individual functions, not specified or included elsewhere (in chapter 84): other machines and mechanical appliances: other: other: other: other. The rate of duty will be 2.5 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Alan Horowitz at 212-637-7027.
