Ohio Pickling & Processing Orders 35-Ton x 72” Ultra Hi- Strength Shape-Correction Turret Head™ Slitting & Packaging Line
April 27, 2021 - Ohio Pickling & Processing has placed an order for a Hi-Performance Braner/Loopco Shape-Correction Turret Head™ Slitting Line with Automatic Slit Coil Packaging. The new equipment will have capacity to efficiently process 35-ton x 72” wide hot rolled and cold rolled coil with ultra high-strength mechanical properties ranging to 290,000-psi (2000 MPa). The Slitting Line will feature tight-line, single-loop, and double-loop operating modes plus in-line CNC shape-correction leveling to produce superior quality slit coils.
A Turret Head™ Slitter equipped with “CloverNut” threadless tooling lock-up and automatic knife gapping will reduce time lost to preparing the next order. Additional quality and productivity enhancing features include a non-marking “Duplex Tensioner” that exchanges “wet and dry” rolls in 30-seconds and automatically establishes rewind tension; a Recoiler that can change from 20” & 24” ID in 2-minutes; automatic “Andiamo” Hands-Free Coil Thread-Up; and Braner USA’s exclusive “KEVIN” computer automation that generates and displays tooling set-ups, automates slit width quality control and recording; automatically establishes line operating parameters, generates smart phone accessible real-time order/production reports, and automatically programs slit coil sizes and coil package sorting information into the Pack Line.
The automatic Slit Coil Pack Line will efficiently handle 15,000# coils. Safety features include extensive non-intrusive equipment guarding and an elevating looping pit floor that eliminates hazardous pit clean-out duties. The new Braner USA Slitting & Packaging equipment is slated for installation in Ohio Pickling & Processing’s expanded coil center in Toledo, OH.
