Vetchberry Coil Processing

Vetchberry Coil Processing Division

Evolution and Transformation

Vetchberry has evolved in recent years from a highly successful narrow coil processing business into a comprehensively equipped coil service centre, as part of a multi-million pound investment programme in wide coil processing which has propelled it to the forefront of fast, efficient production of stainless steel and aluminium flat products.

The ability to produce these materials up to 1850 mm wide, and in thicknesses between 0.3 mm and 6.0 mm has transformed the supply chain profile and enables the business to reach out to new markets with a unique value proposition, backed by some of the most modern facilities in Europe and unrivalled logistical support from the wholly owned thyssenkrupp Materials Logistics UK fleet of trucks, which delivers on a daily basis to all parts of the UK.

Vetchberry has over thirty years’ experience in slitting stainless steel and, more recently, aluminium. Already the leading UK producer of narrow slit coil the business is rapidly expanding its market footprint following the recent addition of a new 1850 mm wide Georg slitting line incorporating state of the art technology and capable of producing slit coil of outstanding product quality in both aluminium and stainless steel.

Traverse Winding
Traverse Winding

Vetchberry can supply traverse wound coil in a thickness range from 0.6 mm up to 3.00 mm thick and in widths between 10 mm and 60mm wide, in all grades of steel. With 4 modern traverse winding lines on site and over 20 years’ experience in this type of processing, we can offer you the opportunity to benefit from our experience. Traditional 'pancake' coils at narrow widths often have the disadvantage of restricted outside diameter, resulting in short coil lengths.

For continuous feed applications, e.g. presswork , there is a growing demand for longer running feedstock.

Why stop your production six times to repeatedly load traditional 'pancake coils' when you could do it once with traverse wound coils supplied by Vetchberry?

We can offer 2 inside coil diameters: 16" (406 mm) or 20" (508 mm).

We can also offer in-line deburred edges on certain sizes of traverse wound coil.
