Sterling Heights, Mich., - COE Press Equipment announced that it has finished the installation and startup of a new Cut-to-Length (CTL) line for Reliance Fabricator and Engineers, a steel service center located in Faridabad, India. The new CTL line is a heavy-duty system comprised of COE's ServoMaster 24" servo roll feed, 250 Series power straightener, 10,000 # coil reel and a pneumatic production shear. This investment will expand Reliance's state-of-the-art facility and its ability to produce blanks for its steel, automotive, and appliance industry customers.

"We are excited about this opportunity to show that COE can be competitive in the global market," said Jim Ward, COE's General Sales Manager. "We believe this will open up the opportunity for other overseas business."

The line can handle material thickness of up to .090" x 24" wide at 45,000 psi yield strength and tensile strength of up to 70,000 psi. The reel can handle 10,000# coils with widths up to 24" and O.D. up to 60". Maximum linespeed of the CTL is up to 160 FPM and the servo feed provides roll speeds of up to 465 feet/minute with a feed accuracy of + 0.005".

The line also contains a COE high-speed pneumatic shear, which can operate at up to 60 spm. The shear is fully integrated both mechanically and electronically with the servo feed to provide a complete single-source CTL package.

The line offers pneumatic raise and lower of the upper pinch rolls, independent adjustment of the upper straightener rolls, and self-centering hand crank entrance edge guides for easy modification.
