Cut-to-Length Lines

Cutting to length is the technology that involves cutting blanks
from flat-rolled coil material. The sheets can have different geometries.

Efficient Cut-to-Length Lines for Metal Strip Production

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.

The configuration of a cut-to-length line depends on various factors. This includes the type of material to be cut, the desired end products and the production capacity. Our cut-to-length lines are exclusively equipped with our SCHNUTZ precision leveling machines. In addition, we can integrate various measuring systems, trimming shears, foiling devices and different scrap disposal systems.

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 (0.22 pound/square inch) and a yield strength above 1,100 N/mm² (0.16 pound/square inch)
