Fagor Arrasate, with U.S. headquarters in Bensenville, IL, has installed a new slitting line in Holland for Dingemans, a manufacturer of metal-building and construction components. The line can process cold-rolled steel in widths to 1600 mm and thicknesses to 3 mm. Maximum coil weight is 25,000 kg with line speed topping out at 250 m/min. The line has high-strength-steel processing capability and includes a two-coil movable storage system, a coil car, an electrically powered uncoiler, peeler, automatic coil feeding, a peeler, pinch rolls, a high-capacity slitter able to cut 30 strips simultaneously, triple-effect movable tensioning device, recoiler with outboard bearing, exit coil car with 'piano' system for extracting coils without banding and exit turnstile. The line also has a slitter quick-change tooling system. Additional systems allow for the quick change of separators in the tensioning device and the recoiler. A central computer controls all line operations and is backed by an automatic, intelligent diagnosis system.
