German SSC Flachstahl Werl gets new slitting line

Fagor Arrasate has supplied German steel service centre Flachstahl Werl with its third slitting line with coil banding, Kallanish learns from the supplier company.

The new equipment provides the user with the most demanding standards of surface quality, and allows for working with delicate materials of thicknesses from 0.3-6mm, Fagor Arrasate claims. It allows Flachstahl Werl to process and cut material at high rates and with the quality required for the automotive industry, thanks to its different tensioning systems, Fagor notes. Specifically, it incorporates a system of belt bridle and a tensioner with felt pads for different types of steel.

Jon Zubillaga, Fagor Arrasate’s sales manager for Central Europe, claims that “…with this new slitting line, Flachstahl Werl becomes the absolute market leader in Germany.” The new line will benefit from Fagor Arrasate’s new after-sales service plant in Hilpoltstein, Germany.
