Andes Coil Processors Announces Installation of a 52-inch Embossing Line

GARY, IN (November 12, 2020) – Andes Coil Processors has added embossing services to its Gary, Ind., facility with the installation of a new 52-inch embossing line.

The embossing procedure is a unique, metal-forming process producing raised and/or sunken designs into metal without changing the material thickness. Andes Coil Proccessors’ line provides the non-directional stucco pattern, producing a depth of up to .013 inch. This pattern services shelving products, industrial flooring, building products and many other products in related industries. Additional output patterns will be added as customers’ requirements warrant them. 

The line runs at a speed of 250 feet per minute plus, running coils between 5 inches in width up to 52 inches wide with gauge ranges between .010- and .045-inch thickness for steel products and .010- and .080-inch thickness for aluminum products. The maximum incoming and outgoing weight capacity is 25,000 pounds.

At Andes, it is our goal to continue to find ways to help our customers grow with us!” 

As a toll processor, Andes does not own steel but rather provides processing and logistical services to its customers.
