Red Bud Industries, Red Bud, Ill., has installed a Heavy Gauge Cut-to-Length line with a Stretcher Leveler at Coil Steel Processing, Toledo, Ohio. The new line processes material up to 0.625 inches by 72 inches wide up to 80,000 pounds.
The hybrid system has the ability to operate in start/stop mode when running thicker material and in looping mode when running 0.375-inch and thinner material. Loop mode significantly increases productivity and throughput while stretching. A 60,000-pound stack table with 60 degrees of lift also significantly increases throughput by allowing an entire coil to be run on one stack.
The Stretcher Leveler features Quick Draw technology that produces the fastest cycle times in the industry, Red Bud claims. In addition, the unit also features Red Bud Industries’ SUREGRIP long-life metallic grippers that prevent slippage when running high strength and/or oily material.
