Cut-to-Length Lines

Cutting to length is the technology of cutting a metal strip into metal sheets.

b+s cut-to-length lines are used to cut metal strips into sheets and then stack them into packages.

Depending on the requirements and productivity, our cut-to-length lines are equipped with fixed cut-to-length shears (stop and go) or with flying cut-to-length shears and the appropriate stacking system.

Depending on the required quality, flatness and surface of the metal sheets, the cut-to-length lines are equipped with our SCHNUTZ precision levelers, trimming shears or a foiling device.

Advantages of a b+s cut-to-length line:

  • strip flatness is guaranteed by the integration of a high-performance leveler from the wold market leader SCHNUTZ
  • Elimination of strip imperfections through the use of “4-high”, “5-high” and “6-high” levelers
  • reduction of set-up times through innovative automation solutions as well as high line speeds
  • high-precision cut quality and angularity of the blanks
  • Strip processing with integrated trimming shear and scrap disposal systems, such as scrap winder or scrap cutter,
  • high-precision stacking accuracy and no surface damage due to advanced stacking systems,
  • experience in processing ultra-high-strength materials with tensile strength above 1,500 N/mm² and yield strength above 1,100 N/mm².
