The first line includes a COE 54-in. servo roll feed, 54-in. x 20-ft. dual threading table, 50,000-lb. x 54-in. coil reel, and 4-in. x 54-in. straightener with 6-in. pinch rolls. The second line includes COE’s 72-in. servo roll feed, 72-in. x 16-ft. dual threading table, 60,000-lb. x 72-in. coil reel, and 4-in. x 72-in. straightener with 6-in. pinch rolls.
Both the lines feature power straighteners equipped with automatic lubrication systems, non-marking chrome rolls and a heavy-duty alligator peeler-dekinker station for hands-free threading and top or bottom payoff ability. The 54-in. line system has a roll speed up 362 feet/minute and straightener payoff rate of up to 80 FPM. The second line system has a roll speed up 296 feet/minute and straightener payoff rate of up to 80 FPM. Feed accuracy on both lines is +0.003-inch.
In addition to the traditional coil line equipment, the lines feature MES Zipwelders for shearing and welding coil ends together, with all integration of this equipment provided by COE. COE also provided Installation, training and startup of the two lines.
