Heavy Gauge Slitting Services

Click to Expand

Heavy Gauge Slitting is the process used to cut a master coil of steel into several narrower coils by running the coil through a set of rotary slitting knives. During the slitting process, your product can be customized to your specific weight or width and packaged accordingly.

With one of the largest lines in the Midwest, Alliance Steel has the distinctive capability to offer heavy gauge narrow slitting. We can slit heavy gauge material to a narrow width of 1.250". This heavy gauge line has 14” arbors, three 400 horsepower slitter heads, an automatic un-coiler, and a 400-horsepower re-coiler, providing 22 cuts per quarter-inch.

We slit a variety of materials including hot rolled steel, hot rolled pickled dry steel, hot rolled black, cold rolled steel, and coated steel (hot dipped galvanized, electrogalvanized, galvannealed, and galvalume).

We have the capability to process coils up to 84” wide. Our equipment includes a Red Bud .043"-.500" x 84” heavy gauge slitting line with an 80,000-max coil on entry, heavy-gauge narrow slitting at 1.250”, and corrective leveling up to .187”. With the increasing demand for wider coils, we can help customers across a wide range of industries meet this need, such as those in the agriculture, construction, heavy equipment, pilling, tube, and solar and wind industries.
