Manufacturing and Processing

Across the Steel Canada group of companies, we own delivery flatbed trucks as well as 11 forklifts with a maximum weight capacity of up to 40,000 lbs. To service your requirements, we have invested in best-in-class in-house bending machines, standing seam roll formers, slitters, AG panel formers, sheering lines and cut-to-length lines. Check out our machinery in action below.

 

Cut-To-Length Line:

RANGE: 0.010" to 0.140"

A cut-to-length (CTL) line unrolls a master coil of steel, levels it and cuts it into sheets of precise length. The sheets are then stacked into bundles. Our CTL line processes light and heavy gauge carbon and tinplate steel.

Slitting Line:

RANGE: 0.015" to 0.050"

A slitting line works by uncoiling a large steel coil, flattening it, cutting it into multiple narrower rolls (known as slit coils) and recoiling it back into a roll. The coil is cut using circular knives of varying widths. This process is very specific and tailored to customer requirements using measurements of thickness, weight, width, and length.

Roll forming:

RANGE: 0.010" to 0.140"

Roll forming is a type of rolling involving the continuous bending of a long strip of sheet metal (typically coiled steel) into a desired cross-section. The strip passes through sets of rolls, mounted on consecutive stands, each set performing only an incremental part of the bend, until the desired cross-section (profile) is obtained. Roll forming is ideal for producing constant-profile parts with long lengths and in large quantities. Our roll forming machine produces agricultural panes also known as AG panels as well as roofing and siding panels.
