It’s capable of processing 1500 N/ mm2 steel up to 6 mm thick
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) to SSAB, one of the world’s leading steel companies.
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 most resistant steels, with high yield strength, 1500 N/ mm2, with coils up to 6 mm thick 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”, says Jon Zubillaga, Sales Director for Central Europe at Fagor Arrasate.
