Fagor Arrasate, a world leader in the design and manufacture of slitting and cut-to-length lines, will supply a complete fully automated slitting line for Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS) for SSAB at its Gothenburg plant, one of the world's leading steel companies. The line has been in operation since the end of 2021 processing the most demanding materials.
It is a high-performance line that incorporates all the latest technologies and automations available, allowing it to reach high levels of productivity and profitability.
With a speed of 150 m/min, the line is capable of processing the toughest steels, with a hardness of up to 2,000 N/mm2 for thicknesses up to 2.1 mm and 1,000 N/mm2 for 6 mm thickness and 1550 mm wide. The quick change of the cutting tools and the position of the separators is carried out automatically. This shortens machine set-up times and reduces manual operations, improving ergonomics and safety for operators. The equipment also has a scraper to revalue surplus scrap.
Satisfaction with the results obtained after more than ten years of collaboration has meant that SSAB has once again placed its trust in us to expand its production.
