Greenpoint Installs Multi-Blanking Line

By on

Greenpoint Metals Inc., a steel service center located in Franklin, Ohio, recently installed a .135-inch by 72-inch Multi-Blanking Line with Stretcher Leveler from Red Bud Industries. The new line was specially designed to level and cut-to-length the newer high strength materials.

The Stretcher Leveler features Red Bud’s SUREGRIP metallic grippers that prevent slippage when running high strength and/or oily material. The new line also incorporates a CNC Semi-Automatic Slitting Head. The CNC Slitter can be set up in less than two minutes per cut, thus eliminating costly downtime that can occur when using conventional packed arbor slitters.

Greenpoint Metals’ new line can handle coils up to 60,000 pounds. Other features include a coil stage and load system, uncoiler, peeler breaker, crop shear, roller leveler and more.
