Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is an 84" slitter?


    An 84″ slitter is a type of metalworking machine used to cut large sheets of metal into narrower strips or coils that are 84 inches (7 feet) wide. It is a specific type of slitting machine that is designed to handle large sheet metal rolls or coils.

    The machine consists of a series 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.

    An 84″ 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 steel, aluminum, copper, brass, 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. An 84″ slitter is considered a large machine and is typically used in heavy-duty metalworking applications, such as in the construction, automotive, and aerospace industries. It is capable of producing large volumes of metal strips quickly and efficiently, making it an ideal choice for high-volume production runs.
