This line will be one of the widest aluminium cut-to-length lines in North America and will service numerous industries including marine, commercial transportation, consumer electronics and appliances.
The cut-to-length line will feature entry equipment, over and under coil payoff capabilities, a hydraulic crop shear with auto-gap adjustment, hydraulic roller cassette leveler, side trimmer (up to 8” per side), scrap chopper and direct drive flying shear.
The new line will process aluminium up to 0.375” thick, 35,000 psi yield at a maximum line speed of 200 fpm. Installation of the line will take place summer of 2015, with startup and training shortly after that.
This multi-million dollar investment solidifies Champagne Metals’ commitment to the aluminium service centre market and the continued effort to deliver the high quality services that their customers have grown to expect.
