Cut to Length

RSDC’s impressive 76-inch wide cut to length (CTL) line produces straight cut, chevron and oscillated blanks. This line features automatic coil loading, in-line leveling, high pressure wash and electrostatic dual side oil reapplication. The advantages our customers experience with RSDC’s CTL line include:

  • Automated processes to provide consistent and efficient production
  • Feed forward capabilities to enable auto rejection of material pieces based on defect data communicated by the steel mills
  • Dual inspection capabilities to ensure 100% top and bottom inspection
  • Elevated inspection stations to provide better viewing and optimized inspection processes
  • Automatic “one button” rejection to dispose of non-conforming pieces during inspection
  • Rockwell software automates part recipe set up and part processing history to continually ensure best manufacturing practices
  • Dual stacking system with four pilers to provide continual stacking without halting production
  • Online packaging capabilities to ensure material is ready to ship off the line

The advanced capabilities of RSDC’s cut to length line include:

  • Automated top and bottom coil loading
  • 76-inch wide CTL line
  • 6 high leveler with 9 over 10 rolls and full-width intermediate rolls
  • Dual-side electrostatic oiling
  • Elevated inspections stations for better viewing and optimized inspection processes
