United Performance Metals has ordered a Braner/Loopco Turret Head Slitter to produce ultra-precision high-strength stainless slit coil in its Hamilton, Ohio, coil processing center. The Turret Slitter, designed to process stainless coils with mechanical properties to 200,000-psi, will employ precision eccentric steel strippers rather than common rubber stripper rings in order to enhance ultra-precision thin gauge slit coil quality.
Twin Slitter heads capable of switching from one order to the next in 60 seconds will deliver extraordinary short-run special order production efficiency, Braner claims. The new Eccentric Ring Slitter will be the second Turret Head Slitter in operation at UPM.
