Take a closer look at how extremely thin strips of anodized aluminum are slit and processed for electronics applications.
To fully grasp the cutting edge technology used in the slitting/shearing process is to understand the fracture mechanics of material.
This plant serves the largest metals market in North America and targets aluminum, stainless steel, and other non-ferrous metal products used heavily in the architectural, food equipment and appliance industries.
This new site brings their full line of materials and processing services to markets throughout Europe.
The 54 in wide line from COE Press Equipment can process 40,000 psi aluminum coil from 0.030 in to 0.040 in thick.
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.
