Salico group of companies, with locations in Italy, Spain and UK, specializes in downstream finishing processes after rolling for flat metal strip for both ferrous and non ferrous materials. Different to other suppliers in this field, SALICO in-house technology, know-how and references cover the complete range of processes: tension levelling, surface cleaning and treatment, slitting, cutting to length and packaging.
As for tension levelling, SALICO lines can handle strip thickness from 0.08 up to 6.5 mm, with strip width up to 2,200 mm. All-electric or hybrid drive configuration are available. The leveller most usual configuration is with two sets of elongation clusters and double leveling station, all in cassette arrangement for easy maintenance.
For surface cleaning various technical solutions are available depending upon the requested efficiency. SALICO cleaners portfolio includes soft or strong alkali, acidic, electrolytic, solvent or high pressure hot water technologies.
For slitting applications, SALICO provides the high-precision slitter heads, including automatic high pressure axial clamping of the tools, different backtension devices: simple felt pads, rolls bridles, vacuum rolls, eddy currents and belts bridles.
Within cut to length lines the heavy duty levellers designed to obtain high yield values (>80%), the eccentric rotary shears, flying shears and the vacuum or magnetic stackers, which ensure sheet quality of the sheets both in the surface and the edges while allowing for line operation at maximum speed, by vertical drop of the sheets under no inertia.
SALICO also covers the complete automation package which is developed in-house.
