Coil-Processing Seminar
Slated for Minneapolis in April

Tuesday, February 1, 2011
Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, IL, will host a coil-processing seminar at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott on April 5, 2011. Attendees will learn about blanking, multiblanking, leveling and slitting. Also on the agenda: the new EPS process (Eco-Picked Surface) for hot-rolled black strip, designed to replace acid-picked strip steel. According to the EPS website (, EPS-processed steel “is dry, remarkably clean and very uniform across its surface.” Among the payback for fabricators: “In controlled laser-cutting tests,” the website says, “EPS dry (no oil) achieved 62-percent speed increase over the best P & O cutting speed.” Seminar attendees also will tour Olympic Steel, Plymouth, MN, and view a Red Bud cut-to-length line in action.
