Successful Red Bud Industries seminar held for the first time in South Africa

Red Bud Industries, a leading manufacturer of high speed, cut-to-length, blanking, multi-blanking, stretcher levelling and coil-to-coil slitting machines held its first ever coil processing seminar in South Africa in June 2017 at the Southern Sun O.R. Tambo International Airport Hotel in Johannesburg.

Red Bud Industries have been hosting these comprehensive one-day seminars that are designed to help you gain valuable insight into new technologies and broaden your coil processing knowledge worldwide since 2007.

Experts in the industry discussed their theories on levelling technology, close tolerance blanking, and coil slitting. Discussions also included real world issues that can arise in the workplace, as well as ways to improve their product quality and overall efficiency.

Over 60 attendees learnt about blanking, multi-blanking, levelling, slitting, and a new process (EPS®) for hot roll black material along with learning how to apply new technology, improve tolerances and produce optimum flatness in material.

Featured speakers included Dean Linders, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Red Bud Industries; Dr.-Ing Lutz- Stefan Henrich, Managing Director of Schnutz GmbH; Rob Barclay of Messerfabrik Neuenkamp GmbH and Jeff Herrell of Red Bud Industries.

As a result of the success of this seminar Red Bud Industries is planning to hold the seminar regularly in South Africa.
