COE Building Cut-to-Length Line for Bad Boy Mowers

COE Press Equipment announced that it is developing a cut-to-length line for Bad Boy Mowers, a manufacturer of professional grade lawn mowers in Batesville, Arkansas. This investment will enable Bad Boy to bring much of its blanking operations in-house.  The new 60-in. blanking line is comprised of standard COE equipment including a Heavy-Duty 800 Series Servo Roll Feed, a 60-in. x 30-ft. dual threading table, an HD-Series Heavy Duty 5.00-in. x 60-in. Power Straightener, a 50,000# capacity coil, a hydraulic production shear, a 120-in. long magnetic finger stacker with conveying system and an Allen Bradley ControlLogix controls package.

“Fabricators with varying production schedules and product sizes can benefit from cutting their own material in-house,” commented Reid Coe, company president. “This approach provides better control of production planning, as well as streamlining processes, reducing scrap, improving quality and saving money.”

Bad Boy’s new cut-to-length line, the company’s first, is being built to process steel )MCRS) that is .080-in. to 0.312-in. thick (depending upon material width) at 319 ft./minute. The finger stacker provides direct drop stacking of the blanks to avoid potential damage or material marking. The stacker also has a powered scissors lift table capacity of 6,600-lb. that is used for load/unload. It can handle blank widths from 24-in. to 60-in. and lengths from 24-in. to 120-in. 

This is a turnkey project that includes installation, start-up, and training assistance. COE’s cut-to-length lines are built from standard COE coil processing equipment integrated with shear and stacking solutions, providing a reliable blanking solutions at a value price.
