Acero Prime Orders Braner/Loopco Slitting Line

By on
Braner/Loopco has received an order from Acero Prime to build a 72-inch ultra-high strength Double-Loop Slitting Line for the company’s Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, coil processing facility.

The line will process 30-ton coils with mechanical properties ranging from 2,000 Mpa in gauges from 0.50 millimeters through 6.3 millimeters. The line will operate in double-loop, single-loop and tight-line constant speed operating modes.

The line will also include a loop-control payoff uncoiler, Turret Head Slitter with three-quick change heads and anti-skid automatic strip tension control, among other features. The new slitting line will be Acero Prime’s fifth from Braner/Loopco.
