ASP to Install New Slitter

Arkansas Steel Processing is installing an ALCOS heavy-gauge slitter at its new facility in Osceola, Ark. The slitter will cut from 14 gauge up to 5/8th-inch-thick carbon steel coils weighing up to 100,000 pounds.

“The most impressive part about our machine is not just the 100,000-pound coils at 5/8th-inch thick, but at a yield strength of 100ksi,” said General Manager Mike Jewell. “We also will be able to better serve our customers with shape correction up to a quarter inch thick.”

The machine has the capacity to run coils up to 78 inches wide. “We felt thickness, coil weight, yield strength, and width were the four major factors necessary to support this market in the future,” Jewell says. Arkansas Steel Processing expects to be fully operational on its new 20-acre campus by Labor Day.
