Final slitting

The strip produced is cut to the customer's required width on two slitting lines and one cut-to-length line. Each of the shears has specific characteristics in order to be able to cover the complete spectrum of grades and dimensions. In the process, a hydraulically inflatable shaft prevents the radial run-out of the blades. Together with an extremely high concentric accuracy of the blades, this ensures the narrowest strip width tolerances.

One of the slitting lines was further optimised in 2014 and adjusted to the extended thickness range.
