What you need to know about steel coil slitting
Precision strip steel slitting, often referred to as rolled steel slitting, is a process in which wide metal coils are fed lengthwise through a slitting line and cut into narrower coils. As the coils pass through the splitting machine, extremely sharp circular blades – one upper and one lower – perform the cuts. These are generally referred to as knives and can be moved to produce strips of different widths.
A steel splitting machine consists of three main parts: an uncoiler, the cutting machine and a coiler. The key to optimizing the quality of the steel splitting process lies in the equipment. It must be ensured that all elements are precisely aligned, that knife spacing and clearance are correctly adjusted, that quality tools and sharp knives are used, and that unwind and rewind tension is critical.
