Flat Metal Doesn’t Always Mean Stress Relieved Metal

Whether it's coming from a service center or an upstream process, most sheet or plate will contain residual stress, as shown in left sample, compared to same material (on right) after processing in a parts leveler.
Parts leveling can't free a shop from the stress caused by a missed shipping date, but it CAN relieve those production frustrations caused by metal components loaded with internal stresses that are released during welding, laser cutting, punching or bending. 

The Art of Slitting

The Fully Automated CNC Programmable Slitting Head from Red Bud Industries is a highly advanced Slitting System for both Multi-Blanking and Slitting Lines with a Head that is fully automated to completely set itself up without any operator intervention in less than two minutes.
To fully grasp the cutting edge technology used in the slitting/shearing process is to understand the fracture mechanics of material.

UTIL Canada Installs Fineblanking Feed Line

This “Fineblanking Edition” HD straightener, coil reel with HD hold-down arm, and “alligator” style peeler threader from COE Press was installed  at UTIL Canada. The straightener provides the necessary roll force delivery and rigidity required to achieve the flatness and tolerance required for producing near net shape blanked parts.
This system can process high strength steels up to 90,000 psi yield at thicknesses from 0.118 in to .475 in, depending upon the width of the material, at a payoff rate up to 80 fpm.
