MD Metals specializes in heavy gauge narrow slitting that is always camber free. We slit material from .021″ to .500″ thick and as narrow as .500″ wide up to .52″ wide. Each of our four slitting lines has unique capabilities that provide our customers with slitting possibilities that most cannot offer. Every one of our veteran slitting operators has over a decade of slitting experience, most with much more. We can slit low to high carbon, alloy and HSLA grades. We slit HRPO, HR Black, galvanized, cold rolled and stainless both for our material and as a toll processor for our customers material.
