Spartanburg, SC - All Metals Service & Warehousing, Inc, a multi-facility toll coil processor headquartered in Spartanburg, SC, has installed a high-performance Braner/Loopco "Cassette" Leveler Servo Feed Cut-to-Length/Multi-Blanking Line in its flagship Spartanburg coil processing plant. The new line converts 60,000# x 72" wide ferrous and non-ferrous surface-critical coil in gauges from .028" through .135" into laser quality panel-flat sheets and close-tolerance precision blanks. All Metals' new Multi-Blanking Line, capable of producing full width sheets, side-trimmed sheets, and simultaneously multi-blanking up to five (5) close-tolerance blanks, is equipped with a Computer Controlled Hydraulic Cassette Leveler, Precision AC Servo-Feed, and a variable speed DC Shear capable of generating close-tolerance parts at production rates exceeding 80-strokes/minute.
60,000# x 135"/.028" Hi-Performance Cassette Leveler-Servo-Feed-DC Shear CTL/Multi-Blank Line.
Entry Table efficiently threads coils from the Uncoiler into the Cassette Leveler. Pushbutton adjusted Side Guides present the strip on the Leveler centerline. A Hydraulic Guillotine Shear crops heads and tails from the master coil and deposits the scrap into a Scrap Cart.
Hydraulic Cassette Leveler: A "Cassette" Leveler allows All Metals to produce laser quality panel-flat parts throughout a wide gauge and product range. Microprocessor controlled hydraulic work roll positioning cylinders are contained within the massive 4-post Leveler frame into which quick-change Cassettes are installed. The exchangeable Cassettes contain all the working Leveler parts . . . work rolls, back-up flights, and universal drive shafts, in a common Cassette housing. Cassettes are powered in and out of the Leveler frame by pushbutton. Cassette back-up flights are automatically aligned with the hydraulic back-up cylinders. The work roll drive shafts are automatically engaged with the Leveler gear drive as the Cassette is installed. A microprocessor controller automatically accomplishes initial Leveler set-up based upon operator entered coil gauge and yield strength mechanical properties. All Metals' Cassette Leveler employs 18-independent hydraulic cylinders rather than AC motors, gear reducers, sliding wedges, and jack screws to accomplish Leveler adjustments.
