Stretcher Levelers Features & Benefits

How “level” is your material? How confident are you that your material will stay flat after your customer laser cuts, shears, or punches 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. Stretch Levelers are also much easier to operate than other types of Levelers. The operator simply stretches the material until it is flat. The end result is flat material that stays flat. Your customers will see the difference.
