Automatic Feed Company (AFCO) announces that it has received an order for an eXtra Large Capacity (XLC) Leveler from a large southern Ontario service center and coil processor serving the automotive markets. Capable of handling coil widths of 2150mm (84”), the leveler will be integrated with customer-owned equipment in the summer of 2023.
Designed to accommodate a variety of material strengths and thicknesses using different cassettes, this XLC leveler will include two cassettes, each with different work roll diameters. The AFCO XLC can process a broad range of materials including surface critical steel and aluminum, HSS, AHSS, and UHSS.
This system also comes with an auto dual cassette change table, which holds up to two cassettes for change out in less than four minutes. An independent cassette style pinch roll is located at the exit end of the leveler. The pinch roll unit consists of two full width chromed rolls in a modular assembly for rapid and easy cassette replacement.
The leveler housing has a 140-ton capacity for work roll penetration of material at the leveler entry and exit. It is designed for a line running at max speed up to 90 mpm. AFCO’s Leveler Calculator is also included, assisting operators in making the necessary leveler setting changes based on coil correction needed, helping speed setup and improved quality.
In addition to the equipment, the project scope also includes project management, installation supervision, customer plant startup (commissioning), launch/production support, and operator and maintenance training.
This is the third XLC leveler order Automatic Feed has received from this company.
