A Slitting Line divides master metal coils into smaller coils of a precise width so secondary users such as metal stampers, tube producers or roll forming houses can use it in production of some type of finished product.
Slitting Lines are built to handle a wide array of steel coils. They range from 8” to 84” in width. Master coil weights can range from 3,000 to 80,000 pounds. Flat rolled steel can be produced as thick as 7/8” thick to as thin as .006” with certain specialty metals. Speed can range as fast as 2,000 feet per minute, or as low as 100 feet per minute, depending on the desired processing.
