Delta Brands, Inc., (DBI) has delivered a 3/4" X 96" X 100,000 psi temper pass cut-to-length line with rotary shear to Fortacero S.A. de C.V. Headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, Fortacero offers more than 800 products including plate, hot rolled sheet, and cold rolled sheet as well as structural and merchant bars.
DBI designed and manufactured the temper pass cut-to-length line before delivering the components to Fortacero in record time - just under nine months. DBI is the only manufacturer in the industry to successfully commission a complete temper pass cut-to-length line with rotary shear.
The temper mill cut-to-length method provides a uniform, perfect flatness due to its continuous process which also eliminates material springback. DBI designed its unique rotary shear to eliminate the start/stop operation found in other temper mill lines in the industry and significantly reduce the maintenance costs associated with other types of moving shears. The rotary shear's ability to cut material "on the fly" can double or even triple production.
The robust design of DBI's temper pass line provides a more reliable processing environment and ensures low maintenance. DBI expects to complete installation of the temper pass line with rotary shear at the Fortacero headquarters facility this year.
