High-Speed Slitting Line Installed Down Under

High-Speed Slitting Line Installed Down Under

Monday, December 24, 2007
 
Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, IL, has designed and built a high-speed slitting line recently installed in Melbourne, Australia, by Surdex Steel, a subsidiary of Australia’s largest privately owned service-center chain Southern Steel Group. The slitting line features hands-free threading using a loop traverse system that also supports the strips during tail out, preventing them from falling into the pit. Also included are self-nesting strip dividers and a head-changing system that allows for offline setup and 2-min. head changes. Capacity: 60-in.-wide coils of stock to 0.157 in. thick, with a line speed peaking at 1000 ft./min. Learn more at www.redbudindustriescom.
