The latest addition to its warehouse facility is a brand new 60,000# x 72" Braner/Loopco Triple Turret Head™ Single-Loop Slitting Line. Along with amping up Majestic's processing capabilities, the slitter also signals the company's continued dedication to and investment in the region. 

Currently, assembly of this top-of-the-line slitter is taking place at Majestic's Houston, Texas location. Production is slated to complete in August 2015 , though Majestic's sales team is currently taking orders for slit product.

"We chose a Braner slitter because of their reputation in the industry as the best in the business," says Augie Neff , Majestic's General Manager for the Southwest Division. "We truly believe this machinery will offer immense value for our customer base and allow us to expand our high-quality, prime offerings in Texas and beyond."

The slitter will accept 60,000# master coils with 20"/24" IDs, and deliver 78" OD slit coils with 20"/24" IDs. In addition, the machine has the capacity to slit 60,000# x 72" wide bare and coated carbon steel coil in gauges from 0.010" – 0.250" with mechanical properties ranging to 80,000 psi at processing speeds to 1,000 fpm.

Laser-aided coil loading also improves productivity, while a fiber-optic edge guide system reduces edge trim allowance. Impressively, orders can change over in minutes.  

About: Majestic Steel USA is a nationwide distributor of prime, coated, flat-rolled coil and sheet with cut-to-length, slitting, and blanking capabilities, available on-demand.
