Stainless Steel Slitting

NKS is recognized in the industry as a leader in stainless steel slitting and slitting technology. Whether it’s the unique chemistry used in our slitter knives, our shim-less tooling or our expert in-house grinding capabilities, NKS has the technology to guarantee the edge quality of your stainless steel coil. Our wide range of slitting capabilities insures that we have the right equipment to quickly and efficiently process your orders. In addition to precision slitters, our slitter operators average more the 15 years of operating experience. They are skilled in setting up the slitter and taking all appropriate quality measurement, including gauge, width and camber. With seven high-performance slitters available, NKS will review each order individually to determine which machine will be the best fit. Based on the material properties, the gauge and the final slit width, we can assign the material to the correct slitting line that provides the best slitting performance possible.

Our job is not done when we have finished slitting your material. At NKS we are proud of the appearance and performance of our standard packaging. Our skids are custom designed for strength and the ease with which they can be moved with lifting equipment. We use a moisture barrier between the skid and the stainless steel coils, and every skid has a plastic shroud. We can also meet the most demanding customer packaging specifications. Our traffic department can arrange for shipping on most carriers and can often recommend shipping alternatives to save you money. UPS and FEDEX next day delivery is available upon request.

At NKS, our job is more than slitting stainless steel and shipping stainless steel coils, our job is to meet all of your stainless steel requirements. Count on NKS to provide the service you need from order entry to delivery, and everything in between.
