The fully integrated blanking line consists of a heavy-duty CPRF-548 servo roll feed; a CPDTT-4812 thread table designed for a 12-ft.-long loop pit; a CPPS-305-48 precision straightener with a 40-HP drive; single-row backups; and a peeler/threader/hold-down station for hands-free threading.
The coil handling is achieved with a CPR-40054 coil reel and coil car and features fail-safe drag brake and automatic brake compensation.
