Cut To Length Line
Cut-to-length (CTL) unrolls and flattens a roll of material, cuts it into sheets of precise length, and stacks the sheets into a bundle. Functions may include, but are not limited to, coil inventory and coil loading, unwinding and unwinding, straightening of the leading edge of the coil, edge trimming, scrap cutting, and sheet stacking. Inline equipment used in the system may vary depending on width, thickness and incoming coil weight, and may include coil storage, uncoilers and coil loading, straighteners, flatteners, roll feeds machines, shears, stackers and related tools and accessories. Depending on the final end product used from the cut sheet, flatness can be a critical point, and a dual leveler, leveler, or stretch leveler can be used in the process.
