Ferrolux Metals Co. of Michigan LLC has added a second Herr Voss/Stamco cold-rolled slitting and inspection line at its Detroit facility. A duplicate of an existing line, the new line doubles the company's capability to provide slitting and inspection for automakers and other critical-finish component manufacturers.
Both the new and existing slitting lines can process exposed cold-rolled and unexposed, hot-dipped and electrogalvanized, aluminized, stainless, prepainted, long-terne, and aluminum material. Capable of handling 110,000-lb. coils, the new line can edge-trim coils from 0.015 to 0.156 in. thick, up to 78 in. wide.
Both lines provide top and bottom strobe inspection, full X-ray gauging, and coil defect mapping. Electrostatic oiling is available as required.
