The Chicago Slitter: One Aspect of Our Coil Slitting Services

At Lynch Metals, we continuously seek out the best machining tools and precision cutting equipment to support our operations. That is why we went to Chicago Slitter when we sought a machine to improve our coil slitting capabilities.

Chicago Slitter combines creative engineering and advanced technology to produce some of the most comprehensive coil processing solutions on the market. With more than 40 years in the business and a dedication to providing innovative production systems, we knew that Chicago Slitter would deliver a coil slitting machine that provided increased efficiency and maximum productivity.

What Can the Chicago Slitter Do?

Chicago Slitter coil slitting lines can tackle jobs ranging from simple to complex. The slitter features roll-only tension, wherein the metal is able to wind coils tightly without any risk of scratching the metal. Roll-only tension accomplishes this by eliminating surface-to-surface contact.

Coil slitting lines from Chicago Slitter feature higher yields, high versatility, and increased safety. This machine enables work with metals of different thickness levels and myriad surface conditions.

Chicago Slitter’s coil slitting lines also include other benefits, such as:

  • Smart control systems for improved repeatability
  • Faster production speeds
  • Quicker recoiler drum and tooling changeovers
  • Push button tooling lock-up
  • Reduced labor costs
