It features a two-head quick-change turret head slitter with pushbutton tooling lockup and an automatically set up precision shape-correction Cluster Leveler designed to correct edge-wave and center-buckle strip shape defects and deburr at 1,000 FPM.
A slit coil packaging line that straps and packages coils automatically for shipment rounds out the installation.
