Stretcher Levelers

The World Leader in Stretcher Leveler Technology

Red Bud Industries has been building Stretcher Levelers since 1986. With over 65 Stretcher Levelers sold worldwide, Red Bud Industries has earned a reputation as a leader in the design and production of stretcher leveling technology. While Temper Mill Cut-To-Length Line installations have declined over the years, the Stretcher Leveler has been increasingly popular. As the world’s leading Stretcher Leveler Manufacturer, a Red Bud Industries Stretch Leveler is highly regarded as the gold standard within the industry.

Elegant in its simplicity!

Our “T Series” Stretch Levelers are the next evolution in stretcher levelling technology. Their revolutionary design is the first ever to incorporate a bolt together, tie rod construction. These machines are floor mounted, require minimal foundation work, and come in fixed bed lengths up to 50′ (15 m). Stretch Levelers are also significantly less expensive and have lower overall maintenance costs than comparable Temper Mill Cut-To-Length Lines.

Beauty and a Beast! 
Depending on the model, these Stretcher Leveler units can handle material thicknesses from .039″ (1 mm) all the way up to 1.00″ (25 mm) on the same machine! Our Stretch Levelers also include Quick Draw technology that produces the fastest cycle times on the planet. In addition, our SUREGRIP® System features adjustable clamping pressure and specially designed non-slip, long life metallic grippers. Our grippers will not slip even if you are running high strength and/or oily material.

Save a Tree! 
Unlike units built by other Stretcher Leveler Manufacturers, our Stretch Levelers do not require you to use cardboard inserts that need to be changed and thrown away every time you run a coil. To the contrary, you can use our grippers for up to a year or more before they need resurfaced. If you are ready to “terminate” your stress, give us a call for more information.
