RBI Offers Heavy-Gauge Slitters
Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, Ill., offers heavy-gauge slitting lines that combine all the features available on RBI light-gauge high-speed slitting lines, but with the robust construction of the company’s heavy-gauge CTL plate lines, the company says.
RBI lines offer quick setup and changeover, as well as hands-free threading from uncoiler to recoiler. The auto load system and Coil Prep Station allows users to “pre-prep” coils prior to loading on the uncoiler. When the coil being run tails out, the line will automatically advance the next coil in rotation and load it onto the uncoiler.
RBI heavy-gauge slitters can process steel coils up to one-half inch thick and 96 inches wide at weights up to 90,000 pounds.
