The process of slitting takes a large coil of steel and passes it through a set of rotary slitting knives, creating multiple narrower coils that maintain the slit width throughout the entire coil. By using precision slitting equipment, it is possible to hold width tolerances of +/- .005”. The slit “mults” are recoiled and can be broken to custom sizes in order to meet weight and specifications.
Horizon Steel utilizes our precision slitting equipment to service customers across many different industries, such as automotive, solar, agriculture, oil & mining, heavy truck, construction, appliance and many other applications are supplied through our facilities.
