Steel Coil Edging FAQ's
Q: What is edging of a steel coil?
A: Steel coil edging is the process of rolling the edges of a steel coil to the desired shape, eliminating the
slit burr edge. The slit burr edge is rolled and formed into the strip making the edges safe for exposed
Q: What is a slit burr edge?
A: A burr is an edge defect on a steel coil produced during the slitting process. It is a sharp ridge sticking
out aways from the rest of the slit cut.
Why Steel Edging?
When using oscillating coils in a stamping operation
loading times are reduced by up to 100%
Our customers find that steel edging creates a very close tolerance product for many applications. Whenever our customer needs tighter width tolerances than industry standard, steel edging can be the answer. Siegal Strip, produces tighter than standard gauge tolerances by means of gauge correcting thickness variations. We do this by using our temper mills in line on our edging equipment. Our powered edging dies alter the width tolerances per customer specifications and our camber straighteners and levellors assure a perfectly straight tight tolerance product. This is steel edging at its best.
In addition to offering steel edging services that can provide tighter than standard gauge tolerances, enhanced die life, and cost savings, Siegal also offers:
- Cost savings with our steel edging process
- Improved productivity
- Quick turnaround times
Benefits of Steel Edging
There are a number of benefits to utilizing the steel edging process on your material, including:
- Improved part functionality
- Safety edge
- Improved aesthetics
- Tighter gauge tolerances
Cost Savings of Steel Edging?
Steel edging assures that our customers receive closer than standard width and gauge tolerances than a slit steel product. This means that die life is enhanced.
Our customers save money by ordering an edged steel product in their desired multiple. Our customers can save even more money by buying Siegal Strip, our steel edged product, in coil. Finally, our customers can save the most by using oscillate traverse wound steel edging. By welding the tails of steel edged coils together and wound in a traverse manner, customers may reduce their loading times by up to 100%. The cost savings ensure that traverse wound Siegal Strip save more than the process cost. Steel edging at its most economical.
