Champagne Metals, based in Glenpool, Oklahoma, recently commissioned their new Butech Bliss 111 inch wide Cut-To-Length Line at its newly constructed Middlebury, Indiana facility.

This line is one of the widest aluminium Cut-To-Length lines in North America and will satisfy the ever growing demand of aluminium material by the marine, commercial transportation, consumer electronics and appliances industries.

The Cut-To-Length Line will feature entry equipment, over and under coil payoff capabilities, a hydraulic crop shear with auto-gap adjustment, side trimmer (up to 8” per side), scrap chopper, hydraulic roller cassette leveller and direct drive flying shear. The new line’s capabilities include the ability to process aluminium up to 0.375” thick, 35,000 psi yield at a maximum line speed of 200 fpm.
