HOW IT’S DONE
It first begins with the coil steel material or rolls of material needed after it has endured the hot rolled or cold rolled process. It is placed in a slitting machine, a slitter rewinder, to perform shearing to create more narrow rolls.
The metal material is placed in an uncoiler, an area of the machine unwraps the material, and it is then moved through a set of shears to begin the slitting process. These cutting shears are set according to the desired custom width provided by the design’s requirements.
The thickness of the material also depends on the machine being used.
The cut steel materials, or strands, are then measured by our team of professionals for quality assurance. After it is checked and approved, the material is then placed through a set of discs called separators to guide the slitted material to the recoiler.
The aluminum or steel material is then rolled back into a coil and packaged so it can be ready for shipping to our respective clients. The slit coil can also endure different sets of finishes, depending on the client’s manufacturing requests. Adding a corrosion-resistant finish is one of the best choices to make in order to maintain a durable and long-lasting material.
This process is used regularly in the manufacturing industry to create necessary products we use every day such as:
- HVAC Ducts
- Lighting Fixtures
- Architectural Trims
- Roof Drain Pipes
Our steel and aluminum products are used in almost every industry that requires high-quality, high-strength, metal materials of any size and shape in order to achieve project goals.
