Ken-Mac Metals, a division of ThyssenKrupp Materials NA, Inc., has ordered a precision multiblanking line from Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, IL. The new line will process stainless steel, aluminum and prepainted materials at the Ken-Mac service center in Kansas City, MO. It will include the Red Bud precision grip-feed system and a CNC programmable slitter, and will produce blanks with width and length tolerances of ±0.005 in. An automatic strip-divider positioning system will automatically set up the dividers in the strip stacker as the operator sets up the slitting head.
Ken-Mac will employ the line to process coils weighing as much as 50,000 lb. at widths to 72 in. and in sheet thickness to 0.135 in.
