Challenges

  • Advanced high-strength steel grades have to be cut reliable and in short times

Solution

  • Cross cutting of high-strength strip during strip run up to 100 m/min synchronized to line speed
  • Sheet length starting from 500 mm step less selectable
  • Scrap discharge and sample selection possible
  • Compact design
  • Minimized wear due to rotary motion
  • No hydraulic fluid above strip travel due to electrical drive
  • Low knife costs due to straight and simple design
