Herr-Voss Stamco recently completed the commissioning of a 5/8” x 76” wide Slitting Line for Atlas Tube at its Harrow, Ontario facility.
The line was designed and fabricated in Herr-Voss Stamco’s Pennsylvania facilities. The line is capable of running 5/8” thick 80,000 PSI yield steel at speeds up to 300 FPM. The line also handles coils up to 80,000 lbs. Features of the line include a quick change slitter head injection system and quick load separator arbors for efficient tooling set-up changes as well as Herr-Voss Stamco’s unique threading clamp design that allows for rapid and easy insertion of multiple strands into the recoiler gripper slot.
The line will allow Atlas Tube to process in house the material they need to feed their existing Tube Mills. “As we investigated ways to become more efficient in our production of steel tube and improve our delivery of service to our customers, we turned to Herr-Voss Stamco. We believe that their “state-of-the-art” slitter will help us make the performance improvements we desired.” Says John Higgins - Executive Vice President, Operations at Atlas Tube.
Herr-Voss Stamco is a leading designer and manufacturer of slitting, cut-to-length, tension leveling, precision roller leveling and other coil processing equipment.
