Chicago Slitter Installs Line at Egyptian Distributor

Chicago Slitter Installs Line at Egyptian Distributor

Monday, July 28, 2003
 
Chicago Slitter, Itasca, IL, has installed a slitting system at Egyptian steel distributor Magd Steel. The 72-in. 50,000-lb.-coil-capacity line enables Magd Steel to process and distribute 301, 302, 304 and 316 stainless steel in thicknesses to 0.187 in. Line features include power tooling lock-up, in which a hydraulically powered mechanism locks slitter-head tooling in seconds while eliminating the need for wrenches, jet nuts and grease guns; a roll-only tension stand that eliminates surface damage and other problems associated with drag pads; and quick-tension roll interchange for oily and dry material surfaces.
