A flat sheet of material is not actually produced by a mill as a flat sheet. In reality, a flat sheet of material starts its life as part of a coil of material. A Cutting to Length Line / Steel coil auto cutting line will uncoil the material, level it, and then cut it to the required length and stack it. The end product produced by a Cutting to Length Line / Steel coil auto cutting line is a flat sheet of material cut to a very precise length tolerance. When cutting to length and the proper line configuration is considered for some application, there are several variables that should be taken care of. The thickness of the material, the type of material, length of the sheets to be produced, as well as annual volume to be processed all influence the line configuration and capabilities required for a successful installation are some of those variables.
Cutting to length line/ Steel coil auto cutting line can be supplied with start-stop shears, flying shears, rotating shears or continuous direct feed, air cushion, bomb-door type, electromagnetic or vacuum stackers. High-precision levelers of four, five and six heights, computer controlled. Edge trimming may be incorporated. This line is totally computer-controlled with diagnosis, automatic coil feed and quality control. For carbon steel, exposed and non exposed material, stainless steel, pre-painted steel, aluminum and other metals.
Cutting to length lines are the right technological solutions to ensure world-class quality of the products in terms of flatness and dimensional tolerances. The equipment is designed to minimize the idle time and achieve a high production rate. Cut-to-length lines are designed to ensure high quality sheets and packaging. The 6-high leveler ensures outstanding flatness while a rotary shear achieves high performance and enables continuous production. High production rates can be achieved by flexible non-stop stacking and bundle evacuation systems.
