New Side Trimmer and Scrap Chopper
Installed on Nucor Pickle Line

Tuesday, January 3, 2006
 
Butech Bliss, Salem, OH, has installed a new side trimmer and scrap chopper on a cold-mill pickle line at the Nucor Steel facility in Decatur, AL. The side trimmer is a driven-turret-head style with closed-loop controls for knife lap, gap and width settings. The scrap chopper is a newly designed shimless helical-knife cutting style with double knife hubs in each head, and includes a second set of chopper heads that allows for offline knife maintenance. The setup can handle hot-rolled carbon steel to 0.375 in. thick at line speeds to 700 ft./min. Learn more at www.butech.com.
