Braner/Loopco CTL Line Preparing Material for Laser CuttingJune 1, 2011
Dalco Metals, Inc., Walworth, WI, has installed a new stretch-leveler cut-to-length line capable of handling panel flat and memory-free 80,000-psi yield-strength sheet products. Dalco Metals provides numerous steel grades in slit coil, blanks and cut-to-length sheets.
The line, from Braner/Loopco, Schiller Park, IL, is targeted at customers that laser-cut parts and components. It features a computer-controlled hydraulic roller-leveler equipped with exchangeable thin-gauge and heavy-gauge leveling cassettes, to eliminate strip cross-bow prior to the stretch-leveling process.
Braner/Loopco also has earned an order from material processor Dova, SA, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The firm has ordered its second slitting line from Braner/Loopco, to process surface-critical coated coil. The line will be able to process 1525- by 6.3- mm material (as thin as 0.38 mm) and features a single-loop turret head and slit-coil packaging line. Also included is nonmarking roll tensioning and a shape-correction cluster leveler. Packaging capacity: 5-ton slit coils.Braner/Loopco: 846/671-6210; www.braner.com
