Dover, OH - Greer Steel, a distributor and processor of close-tolerance carbon steel strip has installed a Braner/Loopco Precision Servo-Feed Cut-to-Length Line in its Dover, OH flagship facility. The new Cut-to-Length Line converts 15-ton x 30" wide surface-critical 120,000-140,000 PSI tensile strength coil in gauges from .025" through .220" into precise length panel flat blanks. Equipped with a massive 17-roll backed-up Straightener, a Precision AC Servo-Feed, and a Hi-Speed Hydraulic Shear, the new CTL Line generates precise sheets and blanks at production rates to 40+ PPM.
15-Ton x 30" x .220" x 140,000 PSI CTL Line.
Entry Section: Master coils are transported and loaded onto the CTL Line via Floor Level Coil Car. The Coil Car is equipped with narrow coil support stanchions to handle coils as narrow as 2" wide. An Uncoiler that handles 15-ton x 72" OD coils with 16" and 20" ID coils unwinds the coil into the Straightener. A Paper Rewinder rewinds interleaved paper from the master coil. A Telescoping Blade Peeler and Non-Marking Pinch Rolls quickly threads hi-strength coil into the Straightener.

17-Roll Backed-Up Straightener: A massive backed-up Straightener converts hi-strength coil into flat strip. The Straightener is capable of processing a gauge range from .025" through .220" thick. Mechanical property specifications are 140,000 PSI tensile from .025" through .188", and 120,000 PSI from .189" to .220" thick. Strip widths can range from 30" maximum down to 6", narrower with special handling.
