JW Aluminum Company has put in an order for a 0.08 inch by 84-inch High Speed Slitting/Tension Leveling Line from Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, Ill. The line will be installed at the mill’s facility in Goose Creek, S.C.
The line is part of JW Aluminum’s expansion project, and will accommodate the increased coil width resulting from new equipment being installed. The new line will be rated for coil weights up to 45,000 pounds.
The system will also feature an in-line tension leveling system. Other features include a CNC semi-automatic slitting head, side-shifting tooling bars, pit cross and tailout system, and “flex grip” recoiler gripper.
