A Red Bud Multi-Cut blanking line with stretcher leveller has been installed by Israel-based Packer Yadpaz Ltd.

The new line allows Packer to provide its customers with flat, stress relieved material with good length and width tolerances.

Red Bud said its stretcher leveller will produce the flattest most stable material possible virtually independent of incoming strip shape and severity. The operator stretches the material until it is flat and the result is a product that will stay flat. It means the stretcher leveller is particularly well suited for laser cutting applications where flatness is essential.

Also featured in the line is Red Bud’s precision grip feed system and CNC programmable slitter. This combination of machines gives Packer the capability of producing blanks with width and length tolerances of +/- .127mm (.005”). The CNC slitter can make up to ten cuts and is designed to be set up quickly to eliminate costly downtime that can occur when using conventional packed arbor slitters.

The 4mm (.158”) line consists of a coil stage and load system, uncoiler, peeler breaker, roller leveller, pop-up flatness inspection table, PVC/Paper applicator, hands free thread system, adjustable stretcher leveller, dual motor grip feed-HG, CNC programmable slitter, scrap winders, shear, combination strip/drop stacker, automatically lowering stack table, and end discharge rollouts with pallet loader.
