MidWest Materials purchased a Red Bud cut-to-length line

May 17, 2021 - MidWest Materials Inc., Perry, Ohio, recently purchased a Red Bud Industries .750 in. (19 mm) by 78 in. (1980 mm) by 80,000 lb. (36,000 kg) heavy gauge cut-to-length line with a 30 ft. (9,000 mm) stretcher leveler.

The hybrid system has the ability to operate in start/stop mode when running the thicker materials and in looping mode for .375” (9.5 mm) and thinner material. Loop mode significantly increases productivity and throughput while stretching.

The new line will feature Red Bud’s Pop Top Flattener. The unit allows the top crown and work rolls to be opened with a push of a button for cleaning or maintenance. In addition, the Prime Shear includes a quick- change blade feature that minimizes downtime during blade changes. The Stretcher Leveler also includes a powered gripper extraction system. Although the grippers typically do not require changing for up to a year or more, the extraction system further minimizes downtime when the grippers are changed.

The new line also includes a Continuous Stacking System. It allows virtually nonstop operation even when discharging finished stacks. When a stack is completed, the line momentarily stops, but is quickly restarted and continues to operate while the stack is removed.      

The new equipment consists of a Dual Cone Uncoiler, Peeler, Pop Top Flattener, Rotating Brush Dust Collector System, Thread System, 30 ft. (9000 mm) Stretcher Leveler, Servo Roll Feed, Variable Rake Shear with quick change blades, a Heavy Gauge Drop Stacker with Continuous Stacking feature, and Floor Rollout Conveyors.
