Are you looking for sheets and blanks that are cut to the exacting thickness and dimensional consistencies? Keep reading to learn more about the multi–blanking and cut-to-length process and how it can benefit your business.
What is Multi Blanking?
Multi-blanking is a master coil process that combines slit to width and the cut to length process into a single operation. This process uses slitting heads to cut coil stock into your desired width. Designed with a CNC programmable slitter, the multi-blanking line has tight tolerance capabilities. Tight tolerance products can go directly into manufacturing.
What is Cut to Length?
Cut to length is the process of taking a steel master coil, shearing it into your desired length. We have upgraded our machine with a new grip feed system that allows for a tolerance of +/-.010”.
