Integrated Blanking Lines
Installed at Honda Stamper

Monday, March 25, 2002
 
KTH Parts Industries, a primary supplier of structural stampings and welded assemblies to Honda of America, has installed two integrated blanking lines from Sesco Products Group, Sterling Heights, MI. The lines, capable of processing 0.125-in.-thick by 72-in.-wide HSLA material at up to 230 FPM, will allow KTH to blank in-house and maintain the required standards for on-time delivery, part quality and operational efficiency. A PLC with three touchscreen panels monitors all equipment in the lines--uncoiler, traveling coil car, crop shear, straightener, servo roll feed, etc...--and provides the operator with information on setup, troubleshooting and diagnostics. Sesco partnered with Aida Dayton Technologies on the lines, which feature 600-ton high-speed blanking presses.
