Fagor Installs Slitting Line for Glossy Stainless

Tuesday, January 8, 2002
 
The Birmingham (UK) facility of stainless-steel manufacturer Acerinox has completed its installation of a complete slitting line, provided by Fagor Arrasate. The line processes high-gloss stainless steel in coils to 30,000 lb., widths to 63 in., and thicknesses from 0.007 to 0.100 in. Line speed tops out at 700 ft./min. Included is a surface coil car, DC-controlled uncoiler, centering unit, and slitter with quick-change tooling. A belt bridle creates tension to the recoiler to ensure that the delicate surface will stay scratch-free.
