National Material
of Mexico


When National Material of Mexico, a Mexican based automotive-focused steel service center, started planning for their Monterrey expansion, they knew a Slitter to process the Advanced High Strength Steels would be a requirement. After considering a number of manufacturers, National Material elected to purchase a 6.3 mm x 1829 mm Slitting Line from Red Bud Industries. The new line can process coils with tensile strengths up to 1725 mpa. A Red Bud Industries Semi-Automatic Packaging Line was also provided with the line.

In the video, Luis Villaseñor, Director of Operations for National Material of Mexico, explains their decision to purchase the line from Red Bud Industries. “We needed a stronger, safer, faster, and more capable Slitter. Red Bud Industries had just the machine,” Luis states. The new line incorporates precision large arbor technology that was specially designed to address the unique demands of slitting these ultra-high tensile materials. In addition, the system includes “hands free” push button strip threading from the Uncoiler to the Recoiler and features the quickest set up and changeover in the industry. Luis mentions, “We at National Material of Mexico highly recommend Red Bud Industries and look forward to working with them in the future.”
