Slitting Line

Slitting Line with Recoiler and Strip Transfer Device

Slitting Line

Slitting line is used for processing coiled metals into precise width smaller coils or mults for resale or further processing. Slitting line is typically incorporate a number of machines to allow for easy processing of material strip.

  • Light gauge: process material thickness up to 0.0625″ (1.6 mm)
  • Heavy gauge: process material up to 0.625″ (15.9 mm) thick

Cauffiel Corporation has supplied slitting lines to handle 0.005″ (0.13 mm) to 0.625″ (15.9 mm) and strip widths from 24″ (635 mm) to 120″ (3048mm).
