Aussie Firm Installs High-Speed Slitting Line

Tuesday, July 01, 2008
 
Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, IL, has designed and built a high-speed slitting line recently installed in Melbourne, Australia, by Surdex Steel, a subsidiary of Southern Steel Group, Australia’s largest privately owned service-center chain.

The slitting line features hands-free threading using a loop traverse system that also supports the strips during tail out, preventing them from falling into the pit. Also included are self-nesting strip dividers and a head-changing system that allows for offline setup and 2-min. head changes. Capacity: 60-in.-wide coils of stock to 0.157 in. thick, with line speed peaking at 1000 ft./min.
