The push/pull pickling line will operate in Zamosc, Poland, at a maximum line speed of 40 mpm on coil sizes up to 30,000 kg maximum, at 6 mm by 1,600 mm maximum width.
The 2,100 mm wide dual-head system features two 6 kW lasers that challenge traditional mechanical presses by expanding the production capacity of Advanced High Strength Steel blanks.
The new 110,000 sq ft facility will add 45 new jobs and have cut-to-length and slitting lines that can process light gauge to plate materials.
A look at some of the coil handling systems, cut-to-length lines, slitting lines, hydroforming, stamping presses and other press room equipment exhibited on the show floor at McCormick Place in Chicago on November 18-21.
CHS Automation/Pneumatic Feed Service displays an assortment of coil handling lines for metal stampers, including advanced servo feed rolls, straighteners, coil reels, cradles, air feeds and other equipment.
The new laser blanking line from Schuler Incorporated combines cutting-edge laser methods with continuous coil feeding for maximum performance and flexibility, utilizing DynamicFlow Technology that is energy efficient and can process a variety of materials such as high-strength steels, with repeat accuracy and edge quality. The new line cuts blanks from a continuously fed aluminum coil. Using three laser heads in parallel, this blanking line can cut blanks with a thickness of 0.8 mm to 3 mm and a width of up to 2,150 mm.
