Stainless Steel Strip Coil & Blanks
Stainless steel is typically produced in coil form, with each coil measuring 1,250mm in width. The coil is cut into sheets of a standard size and these sheets are ideal for many general fabrication applications. When it comes to manufacturing bespoke components (everything from exhaust systems to fixings), many engineering companies require specific widths to suit their products, and using standard sheets can result in wasted time and material.
Here at BS Stainless, we have the technology to precision-cut these wider coils of stainless steel down to the exact required width, preventing any wastage and helping companies to better manage their inventories. The coils are added to our slitting line or, depending on the start width, to multiple lines at once.
Each slitting line is first correctly set up by an experienced, highly-skilled 'setter', who ensures that the precision tolerances are met and allows for the right amount of scrap. After slitting, the pieces of stainless steel are at the correct width to be immediately used by engineering companies, where they can be put straight onto the production line. Without this service, such companies find that standard sheets can be too large (which results in them not fitting on the line) or too small (which means that the operator will waste half of their time in changing coils).
'Blanks', rectangular pieces of stainless steel, are used by many clients and are particularly common for presswork where individual pieces are fed into a machine. They are often used for fabricating fixings as well as welded products including rolled materials like exhaust cans and drums. BS Stainless can cut these blanks to exact width before packing them to exactly meet each client's individual requirements. With both our precision-cut stainless steel strip coil and blanks, a wide range of grades and finishes are available to suit different applications.
As BS Stainless has the capability to produce precision-cut stainless steel blanks and strip coil in bulk quantities and with economies of scale, it allows us to offer extremely competitive prices to our clients without any compromise on quality. We work closely with our clients to ensure that the best solution is provided every single time.
