Types of CTL Lines:

Start Stop CTL  

This is the most economical for heavy gauges. The output is generally 100 FPM (30m/min).

As the name implies, the strip is stopped for each cut of the shear.

Flying Shear CTL

The Flying Shear System is a high production “non-contact” solution to CTL applications. This system can be provided in two variations…. a stationary press with a flying die, or with a shear.

Precision Feedroll CTL  

This is a versatile concept utilizing a feedroll operating from a shallow loop combined with a high speed shear.

Rotary Shear CTL    

The Rotary Shear System is the highest output type of CTL line and can cut up to 100 pieces a minute or with line speeds up to 400 FPM (120 m/min.).

Skin Pass Mill CTL  

A Skin Pass Mill in conjunction with our hydraulic corrective levelers produces stress-free, flat material in heavier gauges.
