Precision Strip's oscillate wound, slit coils increase productivity and at the same time reduce scrap and downtime. Precision Strip has the capability to slit and oscillate wind both carbon steel, stainless, and aluminum.

Oscillate slit coils are a solution for manufacturers who strive for productivity gains and improved yields. In oscillate slitting, narrow master coils are welded (plasma or laser) end to end, then are fully planished and annealed. Coils are slit according to specifications and wound in an oscillate manner. This produces a slit strip that is up to 20 times the length of a ribbon wound coil, with bundles up to 250,000 feet in length for light gauge material. The length of the strip is limited only by the gauge of the material and OD of the oscillate slit bundle. The longer, continuous strip results in productivity improvements of up to 20% by reducing the time required for thread up, welding, and line acceleration and deceleration. Head and tail scrap is reduced during processing, resulting in maximum yield from the strip and minimal scrap handling.

During the oscillate slitting process there is a potential for no side scrap to be produced depending upon the type of material. All strips are guaranteed to be within + or - .003" in width tolerance. Oscillate slit bundles can be packaged in customized returnable steel racks or on pallets according to your specifications.

This service is available at the Minster, OH and Tipp City, OH plants.

 

Oscillate Edge conditioning is appropriate for end products that require an absolute burr-free, or rounded edge. This process is especially appropriate for food service applications and hose clamps. Maximum width for this service is 2". Edges that can be provided per the ASTM standards:

#3 as slit
#5 burr-free
#4 modified
#1 full round (skiving)

We can provide edges on both pancake coils and oscillate bundles. The #1 round edge can be provided on pancake to pancake coils, pancake to oscillate bundles, oscillate to oscillate bundles, or oscillate to pancake coils.

This service is available at the Minster, OH plant.
