New Cut-to-Length Line at RC TrailerDecember 1, 2016
Coe Press Equipment has designed, shipped and installed a CTLMaster cut-to-length line with film-applicator station at RC Trailer, Middlebury, IN, to help manufacture aluminum trailers. The 54-in.-wide line is comprised of a standard, motorized coil reel and servo roll feed with the special film-applicator station as well as a pull-through straightener with nonmarking chrome finish rolls, and electro-mechanical shear and hydraulic scissor-lift table.
“RC Trailer produces a variety of trailer styles requiring blanks in many different sizes,” says Steve Donnay, Coe’s director of sales and marketing. “By having this new blanking line inhouse, it can better control its operations, and reduce inventory and processing costs.”
The line can process 40,000-psi aluminum coil from 0.030 to 0.040 in. thick, and produce blanks from 57 to 102 in. long and 24 to 49 in. wide. In addition to the equipment, Coe provided installation, startup services and training.
