Steel Technologies Installs Braner/Loopco Slitter

By on

Braner/Loopco, Schiller Park, Ill., has installed a 72-inch by ¼-inch high-strength strip shape correcting slitting line at Steel Technologies’ coil processing center in Ghent, Ky.

The line has capacity to process 40-ton coils with mechanical properties ranging to 738 Mpa in gauges from 0.024 inches through 0.250 inches at constant operating speeds up to 1,000 FMP. The line is equipped with a Turret Head Slitter with multiple heads that exchange in one minute, plus a power clean-out looping pit, non-marking tensioner with wet and dry rolls, automatic strip tension control and more.

The new ¼-inch line complements an existing ½-inch Braner/Loopco slitter at the facility.
