Metform's slitting line design and manufacturing includes a range of products for hot and cold rolled steel, stainless steel, aluminum and non-ferrous materials. The capacity range is up to 2500mm in width, 0.006” - 0.120” (0.15mm to 3mm) strip thickness, coil weights up to 35 tons and line speeds of up to 1000 fpm (300mpm).
Every slitting line is designed and built to order based on each customer’s production requirements. We offer various features which include automatic brake control, automatic changeover systems for slitting heads, rapid threading systems, automatic coil banding equipment and inspection systems. These features allow us to deliver heavy-duty, service centre reliable and high-productivity slitting equipment.
At Metform, we produce cut-to-length lines for gauge ranges up to 0.125”. If the specification requires levelling Metform will incorporate a Bradbury eDrive® Leveler, considered the best in the industry. This combination is only possible as Metform is part of the Bradbury Group of companies. Metform’s specialty is lighter gauge lines designed specifically for customers who want to process their own sheets in-house. We will customize your equipment to meet your specific needs.
Designed for customers with low production rates, these cut-to-length lines offer an economical solution that can easily process heavier gauge and non-surface critical materials.
Designed to be versatile and run at high speeds, these cut-to-length lines offer a solution that can process a variety of materials and material thicknesses. The continuous process of this line makes it an ideal choice for surface-critical or soft materials such as aluminum.
Designed for high volume and high-quality manufacturing such as automotive, architectural product and appliance industries, these cut-to-length lines offer a versatile solution that combines high speed with length accuracy. This design incorporates a precision leveler, accumulation loops and an accurate shear to provide the desired results.
Metform offers a light gauge cut-to-length system designed to be low-cost but flexible for lower-volume applications. Designed to deliver clean and accurate cutting at speeds up to 150 fpm, MetKut is available in standard widths of 48” and 60” to process 12-26 GA steel. MetKut’s innovative modular design makes it easily adaptable with minimal set-up and adjustment, offering customers high quality at an affordable price.
The MetKut features a servo-controlled flying cut-off with a 7-roll flattener, all built into one compact unit. Optional features include a built-in slitting head.
Metform offers robust design and engineering solutions to meet all your custom embossing line needs. We can provide systems that will satisfy even the most demanding technical specifications. We work with our partner Alliance Machine and Engraving to develop the right embossing machine to your specific pattern requirements. Coupling an Alliance embossing machine into a Metform line gives you the best possible combination of expertise and equipment quality.
Metform can make your embossing line do more. Have you considered tension levelling in-line? Yes, it is possible and it doesn’t damage the embossed surface! This is significant as it reduces cost and the risk of damage due to additional handling of surface-sensitive coils. Have you considered slitting in the same line as well? Now you can emboss, tension level and slit to a finished width in one operation!
You can also use this multi-use line to recover rejected coils by tension levelling and recoiling only.
