Part of the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes Video Series, this program introduces the primary methods of processing sheet metal coils and featurs segments on coil slitting, coil blanking, and coil processing lines.
The coil slitting segment features detailed examinations of the components comprising the two primary types of slitters: pull-through slitter and loop type slitter.
The coil blanking segment highlights the use of stationary cut-to-length shearing lines, flying shear lines, and blanking presses.
The coil processing lines segment focuses primarily on the equipment and methods of feeding coil stock to stamping presses and other processing lines. Coil-to-coil welding and strip accumulators are also featured.
