Traverse-wound strip

Traverse-wound strip consists of coils which are welded together and then wound onto a drum or core. Depending on the strip width, considerably longer strip lengths can be achieved than with individual coils. The excellent quality of the welds allows the operator to continuously run the strip through the stamping tools without causing disruption, thus reducing down time. Depending on the design, the stamped parts located at the weld seam may not be fully suitable for the intended function, therefore the welds can be marked in colour if required.

We draw a distinction between drums with side flanges and those without. Depending on the type of drum, the net weight of the traverse-wound strip is between 75 and 1000 kg.

The flangeless drums are least expensive, since the drum centres are made from cardboard. This is particularly environmentally friendly, since they can be returned together with the stamping scrap.
