“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.
