Heidtman Expands Processing Capabilities
 
Heidtman Steel, Toledo, Ohio, has expanded the processing capabilities at two of its facilities. The company has made improvements to the pickle line at its Erie, Mich., location and has commissioned a new multiblanking line at its Butler, Ind., sheet division.

The pickling line at Erie now contains a Herr-Voss Stamco shape correction unit, recently installed in front of its coating section. In addition to precision shape correction up to 0.180 inch by 60 inches, the unit ensures better coating uniformity and greater cost effectiveness, the company claims. Overall, the line offers pickling capacity of 0.400 inch by 60 inches with oil, dry lube and pre-lube coating capabilities, plus a Parsytec surface defect detection system.

At Butler, the new precision SMS Demag multiblanking line will handle strip thickness from 0.010 to 0.135 inch up to 72 inches wide. With a maximum length capacity of 240 inches, the line can handle 80,000-pound coils.

“These investments expand and complement our existing processing capabilities, enhancing our Super Center concept for these facilities,” says Tim Berra, president of Heidtman Steel. “The commissioning of this equipment supports our low-cost, value-added campus model. It’s a model that offers significant benefits to our customers not only in cost, but in quality and customer service”.
