MCNEILUS STEEL INSTALLS THIRD RED BUD STRETCHER LEVELING LINE
Red Bud Industries installed a .500″ (12.7 mm) Cut-To-Length Line with a Stretcher Leveler at McNeilus Steel’s new Fargo, North Dakota, facility. This is the third Stretcher Leveling Line that McNeilus has purchased from Red Bud Industries. It joins the two lines already in production at their Dodge Center, Minnesota, facility.
A Red Bud Stretcher Leveler can produce the flattest most stable material possible virtually independent of incoming strip shape and severity. The operator simply stretches the material until it is flat. The result is a flat product that will stay flat and is particularly well suited for laser cutting applications where flatness is essential.
The line also features a Heavy Gage Drop Stacker that mounts directly to a Variable Rake Shear. This configuration fully supports and neatly stacks heavy gage material. The Drop Stacker can process heavy gage sheets up to 480″ (12,192 mm) in length.
McNeilus Steel’s new Red Bud Stretcher Leveling Line can process coils up to 72″ (1829 mm) wide with a maximum weight of 80,000 lb (36,287 kg). The line consists of an In-Line Stage & Load System, Dual Stub Uncoiler, Heavy Gage Peeler/Breaker, Crop Shear, Dual Roller Levelers, Roller Inspection Area, Dust Collection System, Stretcher Leveler, Variable Rake Shear, and a Heavy Gage Drop Stacker with End Discharge Rollouts.
