  • What is Narrow Coil Slitting?

Narrow Coil Slitting

Narrow slitting is a coil processing service in which a master coil of material is fed into a machine, where it’s slit into the lengths and widths required by the specification. 

As the material moves through the machine, extremely sharp circular blades – also called knives – mounted to spacers, make cuts in the desired locations. Rubber stripper rings pull double duty, supporting the material when slitting is underway and ejecting the finished strip from between the blades afterward. The finished product is called a mult.

Narrow Coil Slitting Services

  • Cutting To Length
  • Narrowing Widths
  • Trimming Edges

When you need steel coils cut to tight tolerances, there’s no better tool than a narrow slitting line. Capable of cutting material to specified lengths and widths with superior accuracy, the process is renowned for eliminating material waste and saving money. 

Getting steel coils in the length, width, or edge you desire can significantly benefit your business. It maximizes the usable material while decreasing additional processing, which may increase costs and delay turnaround time. This can lead to unwanted downtime.

Our temperature-controlled 300,000 square foot facility is equipped with multiple slitters, .010”-.500”multi–blanking and cut to length .015”-.135”, and stretcher leveling .040”-375”. We also offer value-added services including multiple fiber laser and fabrication, metallurgical testing, full inbound and outbound rail, toll processing, and storage. At Alliance Steel, we want our partners to get the most from their material.
