Strip Process and Finishing Lines

Russula offers automation solutions for the full range of high speed processing and finishing lines used for steel, aluminium and copper strip. Russula has over 250 automation references for metals producers and service centres world-wide.

Processing Lines
Processing lines are used for the thermal and surface treatment of metal strip. The treatments are important to improve the final product qualities, comply with dimensional tolerances and provide protection against agents that cause rust. Processing lines can be integrated with the upstream processes for hot/cold strip rolling mills. Russula has implemented projects in the following types of installations:

  • Continuous Pickling Lines
  • Push Pull Pickling Lines
  • Annealing Lines
  • Coating Lines
  • Galvanizing Lines
  • Tube lines

Finishing Lines
Finishing lines are used to cut, slit or flatten a strip of steel, aluminium or copper. Precise process control is important to meet cutting tolerances, dimensional requirements and quality standards.

  • Slitting Lines
  • Cut-to-Length Lines
  • Tension-Leveling Lines
  • Recoiling, Side-Trimming and Inspection Lines
  • Banding and Packaging Lines

The main benefits achieved by correctly automating process and finishing lines are:

  • Improve product quality
  • Reduce maintenance and operating costs
  • Maximize line availability
  • Minimize off-grade
