Revolutionizing Stretch Leveling on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Among the facilities in which Leveltek International has installed stretch levelers are:

Del Metals

After an extensive review, Del Metals upgraded the cut-to-length line at its Brampton, Ontario service center by installing a Leveltek Stretch Leveler. This capital investment expands the capability of Del’s ½”x72” Pro Eco SMS Demag cut to length line to serve customers in the fabrication, energy, agriculture and transportation markets.

Aperam Stainless – Belgium – 1550mm wide x 6.0mm thick

Aperam Stainless – Belgium selected Leveltek International to provide its Genk, Belgium facility with a coil-to-coil processing line to maximize product flatness. The line also accommodates a wide range of coil widths, gauges and surface finishes, minimizes scrap, and is ideal for leveling bright annealed, and other critical surface materials.

 

Leveltek Helps Italian Steelmaker Give the Boot to Shape Defects

When management of the Accia Speciali Terni (AST) facility, Terni, Italy, needed a solution for eliminating edgewaves, center buckle, quarter buckle, crossbow and mandrel breaks in stainless steel coil, they commissioned Leveltek to provide a stretcher leveling system which uses a patented technique for improving flatness.

The order was placed in December 1997, Leveltek installed the equipment in December 1998 and was accepted by the Accia Speciali Terni facility in January 1999.

By using Leveltek’s stretcher leveling system, AST — a division of the Thyssen Krupp Stainless Group — has improved quality and productivity. Click here to view the pdf >
