Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a 48" slitter?


    A 48″ slitter is a metalworking machine used to cut large sheets of metal into narrower strips or coils that are 48 inches (4 feet) wide. The machine is a specific type of slitting machine that is designed to handle large sheet metal rolls or coils.

    The slitter machine consists of a set of circular blades, called slitter knives or slitter blades, that are mounted on a shaft. The metal sheet or coil is fed into the slitter, and the blades make precise cuts along the length of the metal to create narrower strips or coils.

    A 48″ slitter is a large machine that is commonly used in the manufacturing industry to produce precision metal parts and components for various applications. It can handle a wide range of metals, including carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel, and is capable of cutting metal into strips of various widths and thicknesses.

    The size and cutting capacity of a slitting machine will depend on the specific requirements of the manufacturing process. A 48″ slitter is considered a medium-sized machine and is typically used in heavy-duty metalworking applications, such as in the construction, automotive, and aerospace industries. It is capable of producing moderate volumes of metal strips quickly and efficiently, making it an ideal choice for moderate-volume production runs.
