New High Strength Heavy Gauge Slitting Line ordered by Arkansas Steel Processing LLC

May 17th, 2016

Thanks to its reliable and professional industry leading performance, ALCOS was recently selected by Arkansas Steel Processing LLC as the preferred supplier of a user-friendly slitting line that is commonly used to process steel coils up to 0.625 inches thick and 78 inches wide, and weighing up to 100,000 pounds.

The whole gauge range from 0.075 inches to 0.625 inches can be processed at optimal speeds thanks to the two-speed drive train that is included. This allows for maximum versatility and productivity. With the use of this heavy duty line, high strength steel can be split with yield stress up to 100,000 PSI.

The slitting line from ALCOS features a Turret Injector Slitting System with three head capacity, as well as a Traversing Shape Corrective Hydraulic Leveller. Fast mandrel changes for making different coil I.D. sizes with no bolt-on saddles are made possible with the Rapid-Change quill-type Recoiler made by ALCOS.

In addition, ALCOS is including its own unique Traversing Strip Clamp System. This system works to clamp the slit mults as they come out of the slitter head. It then traverses with the clamped mults to the recoiler. This process makes strip threading significantly easier.
