Ferrolux Doubles Slitting Capacity in Michigan
Ferrolux Metals Co. of Michigan LLC has added a second Herr Voss-Stamco cold-rolled slitting and inspection line at its Detroit facility. A duplicate of the existing line, the new line doubles the company's capability to provide automakers and other critical finish component manufacturers with slitting and inspection.
Both the new and existing slitting lines can process exposed cold-rolled and unexposed hot-dipped and electrogalvanized, aluminized, stainless, prepaint, long terne and aluminum material. Capable of handling 110,000 pound coils, the new line can slit coils up to 78 inches wide in gauges from 0.015 inch to 0.156 inch.
Like the existing line, the new line provides top and bottom strobe inspection, full x-ray gauging and coil defect mapping. Electrostatic oiling is also available as required.
"It's all about providing our customers with more capacity to serve their needs. The addition of this second line will allow us to continue to provide our customers with slitting and inspection services that save money and ensure them of a superior quality product," says Ed Gonzalez, president of Ferrolux Metals.
