Leading US steel maker Nucor has chosen Fives for a completely new packaging system and a cut-off for at their Nucor Tubular Product facility in Marseilles in USA. Nucor Marseilles was looking to maximize the productivity and reliability of their mill while also increasing the safety of operators by moving away from manual packaging and strapping techniques and Fives will provide Nucor Marseilles with a new Taylor-Wilson packaging system from the run-out all the way to the distribution of the bundles. This new packaging system will be capable of packaging tubes from 18-80 inch long with wall thickness up to 5/8 inch and mother tubes up to 12 ¾ inch. Fives has partnered up with ITIPACK to provide the best solution for Nucor Marseilles. ITIPACK will supply an automatic strapping mechanism while Fives provides the handling and bundling solutions. These automated systems will increase safety of operators by removing the need to handle tube by hand and will maximize the overall productivity and reliability of the mill exit. Following the success of the new packaging system order, Nucor Marseilles also chose Fives to put in a new cut-off for their 12K Abbey mill, which was originally installed for structural applications. This new cut-off will be a multi-mode cut-off machine which allows for improved quality cuts while maximizing the cutting speeds. With the packaging system and cut-off being installed by Fives on the same mill, this became a great opportunity to implement them together and create an integrated solution. Fives will also be upgrading the Transition Beam System on the 12K Abbey mill at Nucor Marseilles to support their current market requirements of 0.630 inch max thickness for HSS tubing. TBS is an optimized forming system capable of improving the forming process for a large range of tube sizes while also minimizing tooling costs and reducing changeover times.
