Steel / Aluminium cut to length lines

SA Power have provided system solutions for new feeding, cut-to-length and slitting lines as well as the upgrading of these lines. Both AC and DC systems have been upgraded to the latest technologies.

The lines consist of decoiling, slitting, straightening and feeding over a wide range of material thicknesses and material widths.

We work closely with Reef Engineering in supplying complete cut-to-length lines and feeders for the steel industry. Precision decoiling and straightening through to servo feeders which ensure a high accuracy and repeatability at the required production speeds.

Features

Proven experience and technologies
  • Electrical InstallationComplete electrical design and installation to international ISO/SANS60205-1 standards.
  • Machine SafetyPilz is our standard machine safety platform. Dual circuit safety systems are included as standard with Safety state to main control and HMI.
  • Motor control systemsUnwinding and rewinding systems - both AC and DC are an important function for efficient high speed lines. For AC systems Lenze inverters are used. For DC systems Sprint Controllers are used. This with proven control systems.
  • Control Systems
