Madison, MS - Mi-Tech Steel has installed a state-of-the-art "Double-Loop" surface inspection/slitting line in its Madison, MS coil processing facility near Jackson, MS. The line is designed to process 60,000# x 74" wide exposed automotive quality cold rolled and coated coil in gauges from .015" through .125" at processing speeds to 1,000 FPM. Coils can be unwound from top or bottom in either pull-off or "loop" modes, surface inspected top side and bottom side, side trimmed or slit, and rewound either from the top or bottom with a Top/Bottom Belt Wrapper attaching the strip to the Recoiler mandrel.

Coil Staging & Loading: Master coils are staged ahead of the line on non-marking Storage Saddles. A unique Coil Car retrieves, transports, and loads the coils onto the Uncoiler. Driven "blocker rolls" on the Car rotate the coil for convenient OD band removal prior to loading while an electronic scale records the coil weight. Imperfect inside coil wraps are cropped off the coil and rewound back onto the Uncoiler. The Coil Car quickly removes the ID pup coils from the Uncoiler drum and unloads the scrapped material onto a storage ramp while traveling to retrieve the next master coil.
