Cut-To-Length Lines

A cut-to-length (CTL) or a blanking line unrolls and flattens a coil of material, cuts it into sheets of precise lengths and stacks those sheets into a bundle. Functions can include, but not be limited to, coil stocking and coil loading, uncoiling and coil opening, straightening of the leading edge of the coil, edge trimming, scrap balling, scrap cutting, and sheet stacking. In-line equipment used in a system can vary according to the width, thickness and incoming coil weight and may include coil storage, uncoiler and coil loading, leveler, flattener, dust collector, grip, roll feeds, shears, laser cutting system, sheet stacker and related tooling and accessories.
