Slitting is used in the aluminum industry to modify rolls that would otherwise not fit the customer’s needs and slit them to a usable width. When a master roll enters the warehouse for slitting, it is tested for wettability, free unwind, oxidation, bags and other surface defects that the master roll may have. If none, then the master roll is threaded through the slitter and prepared to be cut to a new width.
Rolls that are modified by Commodity Foil are to a mill caliber standard. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with the highest quality rewind. Please contact Commodity Foil with any further questions about our slitting services.
COMMODITY FOIL’S CUSTOM BUILT SLITTER
A slitter machine changes the widths of incoming aluminum rolls. It is capable of cutting down the width of aluminum foil to 3 inches. This service is important to Commodity Foil’s customers because it allows them to utilize aluminum foil that would otherwise be obsolete in its present width. The slitter is also capable of rewinding aluminum coils to client specifications such as smaller outer diameter or weight restriction.
The slitter is capable of converting the following thin and ultra thin gauges:
- < .00025 (Upon Request)
- > .0007 (Upon Request)
