GUY METALS PURCHASES NEW RED BUD PRECISION BLANKING LINE
Guy Metals of Blaine, Minnesota, has purchased a .375″ (9.5 mm) x 72″ (1829 mm) Red Bud Precision Blanking Line.
The new line will feature Red Bud’s Precision Heavy Gage Grip Feed System. The Grip Feed System will give Guy Metals the capability of producing blanks with length tolerances of ±.005″ (.127 mm). The line will include Red Bud’s High Speed Hydraulic Heavy Gage Shear and 3 Side Blank Support Heavy Gage Drop Stacker with Automatic Part Diverter. The Drop Stacker mounts directly to the back of the Shear which allows material to enter the Drop Stacker before shearing. Once the material is sheared, it drops straight down onto the waiting Stack Table. With the push of a button, the integrated Part Diverter will allow the operator to prevent heads/tails and other unwanted material from entering the Prime Stacker. The Part Diverter can also be used to discharge parts to the end of the line for convenient quality control inspections.
Guy Metals will have the capability of processing coils up to 40,000 lb (18,144 kg) at widths up to 72″ (1829 mm) and thicknesses up to .375″ (9.5 mm).
