Steel Technologies has installed a second high-performance Braner Loopco Strip Shape-Correction slitting line at its Ghent, Ky., coil processing and distribution center. The line can process hot-rolled and cold-rolled coils up to 40 tons by 72 inch wide in gauges up to ¼-inch with mechanical properties ranging to 107,000 psi.
The new line is equipped with productivity- and safety-enhancing features, including a quick-change Turret Head slitter that exchanges tooling in one minute, a non-marking AC Vector Tensioner that automatically exchanges wet and dry rolls in one minute, a power looping pit floor elevator and more.
The installation was done during Steel Technologies’ expansion of its 85,000-square-foot facility at Ghent.
