Setting high quality standards for aluminium strips in the industry, Aleris recently invested in a new slitting line and a chemical degreasing line.
The line is designed for slitting of narrow and thin aluminium coil in soft condition, while preserving its surface and flatness.
Accurate tooling and control systems ensure a consistent slit edge quality and uniform tension throughout the full coil. Thus the achieved very low burr, minimized edge deformation and minimized camber as well as excellent flatness lead to a stable behaviour during further processing of multilayer tubes at the customer.
An automated packaging line is integrated in the slitter which reduces the risk for damage and contamination.
The slitting line is capable of producing full size coils with an outside diameter of up to 1700 mm.
As peeling tests on different types of tubes have proven that the adhesion with chemical degreased aluminium is much better than with only thermally degreased aluminium, Aleris installed a dedicated chemical degreasing line.
Our material for multilayer pipes now has a special chemical degreased surface for excellent adhesion between aluminium and polyethylene.
