Foil Rotary Shearing / Slitting
Rotary shearing is the process of reducing the width of metal strip through passing it through a pair of overlapped rotary blades slitting the strip to your desired width.
We can shear foil at thicknesses 0.025mm ( 25 micron ) up to 1.5mm. Our normal processing widths are 3mm - 305mm however if wider is required please get in touch and we can advise.
We also offer a Free Issue metal shearing / slitting service to shear your material to your desired specifications.

We can produce the Audio Loop to your specification however our more standard sizes are:
10mm 12.5mm 16mm 18mm 20mm 30mm
0.05mm (50 Micron) 0.1mm (100 Micron) 0.125mm
20, 30, 50, 100 micron
Insulated flat copper cable Continued
In Addition we also produce insulated flat copper cable for use within transformers made to your specification. We wrap the copper at widths from 5mm to 60mm.
Insulation Types at 20 -100 microns
Adhesive or non adhesive:
Our Rolling mill can handle material up to 5" wide and can roll down to as thin as 0.1mm.
Cut Sheets / Blanks
We have recently acquired a 1m Bed Guillotine which can cut up to 3mm depending on the metal .We can cut sheets / blanks to your size or specification.
