How is stainless Steel banding made? Watch our Video to find out
Have you ever wondered how stainless steel banding is made? Well, here at BS Fixings we manufacture our stainless-steel banding at our manufacturing facility in Lancashire. We've made a short video showing you how we make, package, and distribute stainless steel banding direct to our customers. You can watch our video below to see the process in action.
To summarise, here at BS Fixings we bring in stainless steel sheet metal, and then using an industrial guillotine, the sheet is ‘slit’ into the required widths. As the edges are rather sharp when first cut, the slit coils are then moved to the purpose-built edge-dressing line for de-burring. This machine smooths off the edges, so they are safe to handle and conform to all the current health and safety directives and standards. The coils are then wound and inserted into compact, handy-to-ship cardboard containers.
