What is a Multi-Blanking Line?
In simple terms, a Multi-Blanking Line is a Cut-To-Length Line which also incorporates a Slitting Head. These systems will combine the slit-to-width and cut-to-length processes into one operation, making it easy and efficient to produce a custom sized part. In order to produce a custom sized sheet of material without a Multi-Blanking Line, you must first slit your master coil to the widths required on your Slitting Line. You must then take each individual slit coil and cut it to length on your Cut-To-Length Line. A Multi-Blanking Line combines both processes into one operation on one line. When considering a Multi-Blanking Line and the proper line configuration for your application, there are several variables you should consider. The thickness of the material, the type of material, length of the sheets to be produced, as well as annual volume to be processed all influence the line configuration and capabilities required for a successful installation.
