Corrective Leveling For Consistently Flat Steel


A reason our customers are so loyal is the steel we provide doesn't have shape problems. That's no accident. It's not because we're lucky with our steel buys. It's because we employ corrective leveling capability that reduces or completely removes shape problems.

 

  • Stretcher Leveling for sheets up to 0.500" that must be 'dead flat' . It eliminates internal stress in the sheet, so there's no springback after cutting (laser, shearing, punching), which makes subsequent welding and forming easier.
  • Tension Leveling (using our SCS / Brushed P&O Line) for coils up to 0.250" with edge wave or bow problems. Whether the coils go on to slitting, cut-to-length or processing (stamping, coating, etc.), shape is no longer a problem.
  • Advanced Roller Leveling for material up to 0.625" processed on our Cut-to-Length Lines. There are several roller leveling approaches and equipment manufacturers out there. We use what produces consistent, reliable flatness with no compromises.
