MIDEAST METALS PRECISION BLANKING LINE WITH STRETCHER LEVELER
Bringing for the first time, the Ultimate American technology in coil processing to produce Laser flat sheets in the continent Asia, the first ever Stainless steel STRETCHER LEVELER in Asia which can process coils up to 8mm thickness. For the population of more than 4 billion across 50 countries, there is only one STRETCHER LEVELER giving laser flat sheets which stay flat even after laser cutting, notching, punching, or subsequent shearing operations.The Stretcher Leveler stretches the material sufficiently to exceed the yield point in all the fibers of the strip from top to bottom and from edge to edge thus equalizing internal trapped stresses throughout the material.
How “level” is your material? How confident are you that your material will stay flat after you laser cut, shear, or punch it? Just because material looks flat, it does not mean it will stay that way. Due to trapped internal stresses, once material is cut, it can spring back. Stretcher leveling produces the flattest, most stable material possible, virtually independent of incoming strip shape and severity. In a head to head comparison, stretch leveling will produce better results than a Temper Mill and will significantly outperform any other type of leveling process. Because stretch leveling exceeds the yield in all of the material top to bottom and side to side, the process produces flat material that is significantly more stable than any other product.
KEY FEATURES OF MIDEAST METALS STRETCHER LEVELER
• Stretcher Leveler produces flat material that stays flat.
• Equalized stresses eliminate spring back.
• Process is not sensitive to incoming shape.
• Reduces percentage of scrap loss.
• Process will not change mechanical properties.
