The 72-in. line can process coil from 0.040 to 0.325 in. thick depending upon the width and steel strength. It features a 72-in. servo roll feed with a ServoMaster touch controller, a 72 in. by 14-ft. dual-threading table with a roller top, and a 50,000-lb.-capacity coil reel. The line also includes a Coe 406 powered straightener featuring ultrasonic variable-speed loop control with a three-position selector switch. Additionally, the system comes with perimeter guarding and safety controls. Coe also provided installation, startup and training for the lines.
