Slitting & Edging Capabilities

Ulbrich can separate a wide strip into narrower cuts with the least amount of edge burr.

The Slitting Process

The Slitting Process

Slitting can serve as both the initial and final operation in the conversion process at Ulbrich. All of the slitters are similar in concept and operation, but vary greatly in size. Our larger machines are dedicated to slitting the heavy gauge incoming coils up to 54″ wide to mults used for re-rolling. At the other end of the process, slitting is used to separate a material at finish gauge and temper into the width ordered by the customer. Apart from width: edge condition, coil support, coil inner diameter, coil size, interleaf and accumulation method are all characteristics of the final product that are realized during final slitting. Our operators will make adjustments to the clearance as they are preparing to slit in order to minimize the burr as much as possible. Once a coil is slit to final width it can be packaged and delivered to the customer.
