Cut-to-length (LCT) lines are designed to transform a parent coil into flat packaged parts. The formats obtained in this type of line can be used in various sectors, the Automobile market being one of the most relevant. The main aspects of the products obtained when used in the automotive sector are:
The main characteristics of this type of line, as regards the automotive sector, are:
The most relevant machines that are integrated in a cross-cutting line are:
At FAGOR ARRASATE, our catalogue includes a comprehensive range of rollers to cover a range of working thicknesses required for this type of line. In the case of the automotive sector, the thickness of the material processed is usually a maximum of 4 mm and mechanical levellers, (the most commonly used) or hydraulic levellers can be used.
The leveller will have additional functions so that it can be adapted to the degree of automation and productivity required by the line, such as automatic cassette changing (< 5 min), LSA (Leveller Setting Assistance), a roller cleaning system, levelling roller materials and finishes, and other features.
The function of the leveller is to eliminate the internal tensions derived from the coil manufacturing process, as well as to eliminate local defects (pockets, ripples, etc.). Because the coils processed in CTL for the automotive sector are usually of very high quality, specific functions for reducing them are not usually required.
Depending on the speed of the line, the material to be processed and its thickness, at FAGOR ARRASATE we have a wide range of shears. In the case of lines intended for the automotive sector, we can offer the following key products:
These are the machines responsible for removing the material cut by the shears. At FAGOR RARASATE, we have a wide range of stackers to process a wide range of materials. We would like to draw your attention to the following stackers which are intended for the automotive sector:
The configuration of the stackers is complemented by a series of auxiliary machines such as scissor tables, carts, shears, cleaning systems and strapping machines, among others.
The basic characteristics of a cut-to-length for automotive industry line are:
The lines of CTL for the automotive sector must be completed with a series of complementary solutions, the most notable of which are as follows:
Automatic loading, feeding and threading.
Edge trimming and further processing by edge trimmer and chopper.
Paper and/or film application systems for delicate materials (stainless steel and/or aluminium).
Automatic pallet loading.
Integrated control up to level 2 and 3.
Digital platform for machine diagnosis as well as preventive and predictive maintenance.
Integral monitoring and multimedia display.
All lines meet the most demanding EC, OSHA, etc. standards.
