Service Center Equipment
With its solutions, Primetals Technologies offers a wide range of lines for slitting, cutting-to-length for rectangular sheets or trapezoids, multiblanking, packaging, and also for revamping existing lines for service centers and rolling plants. We’ll always find exactly the right technical solution for your requirements for strip parameters, process speed or tolerances of the final product. Our lines are designed to meet your needs from the most demanding automotive quality to the stiff and heavy-duty applications for heavy-gauge hot-rolled strip.
Aluminium finishing lines
Primetals Technologies solutions are available for the aluminium industry as well. They provide perfectly flat, clean and dry strip at the exit of our tension leveling lines, for input coming from both hot mill or continuous caster routes. Primetals Technologies finishing lines offered for the aluminium industry are slitting lines, cut-to-length lines, tension leveling lines and packaging lines.
Tension Leveling Lines and Recoiling, Side trimming and Inspection Lines
Primetals Tension Leveling Lines and Recoiling, Side trimming and Inspection Lines are aimed to process semi-finished products for all type of applications, construction, household appliance or automotive products quality. Frequently positioned after strip processing lines, such as galvanizing or annealing, those lines will incorporate on demand various processes to bring the required value added to your products.
Primetals Technologies slitting lines provide you with the most efficient and reliable solutions for the entire range (grade, width and thickness) of steel strip: from the thinner and surface-critical automotive applications to the thick, rough hot-rolled strip used for piping. Precise slitting and tight, scratch-free rewinding allow to process surface-critical material for automotive applications. The slitting lines are designed with fast tool changing solutions to minimize idle times.
Primetals Technologies cut-to-length lines provide you with the right technical solutions to ensure world-class quality of the sheets and packages in terms of their flatness and dimensional tolerances, even for high-strength steels. Moreover, the highest production rates can be achieved by the nonstop rotary shears and flexible nonstop stacking and bundle evacuation and packaging systems.
Primetals Technologies blanking lines focus on careful handling of the steel strip, maximizing surface quality protection while at the same time providing optimum leveling (by high plastification rates) and accurately feeding the strip into the cutting press.
