Fulton County Processing, Delta, Ohio, has commissioned a new high-production slitting line from Butech Bliss. The multimillion dollar project includes a 70,000-plus square foot expansion to the plant, which houses the new line and will provide additional storage space.
“This new line will not only increase the production capabilities of the plant,” said Jeff Kunkel, president at FCP, “but it will allow us to offer quicker turn-around times to our customers while continuing to deliver a high quality product.”
The new slitting line features a 4-roll flattener, heavy gauge interchangeable slitter assembly with scrap handling system, hydraulic shears, looping pit, recoiler with quill type mandrels. It can handle a maximum coil weight of 60,000 pounds, and is capable of processing hot-rolled and hot-rolled pickled and oiled product up to 0.500-inch thick and 74-inch wide at speeds up to 500 fpm.
FCP currently houses and operates three slitting lines and one pickling line. The new slitting line will increase the annual production by 180,000 tons, pushing the annual plant production capacity to over 1.2 million tons.
