The edges on slit metal coil can be sharp and dangerous, which is why it is important to apply edge conditioning to the metal strip for safe handling and processing. The process of edge conditioning involves forming the edges of the metal strip to a desired shape, removing burrs or jaggedness left over from the slitting process. This produces a safer product while also preventing corrosion which can develop around edge imperfections.
Based on the edge required, this is achieved by either machining or skiving the material. Conditioned edges are an excellent choice for industries where the exposed ends of strips come in external contact with or must be handled by processes that require sensitivity.
At Rolled Metal Products, we provide a wide range of standard and custom edging options for your metal strip.
