In plate manufacturing, flatness has always been a challenging target as products are evolving towards harder materials along with increasing thickness ranges.
Clecim’s solutions are bringing flexibility from narrow to wide, from thin to thick, from soft to hardest grades to ensure processing the widest possible product mix.
In addition to having the premium flatness quality monitored by modern flatness gauges, the control of the Levelling process allows high plastification rates, ensuring minimized residual stress in plates as a result. This is advantageous in later forming and laser cutting processing stages, with consequential fewer rejections.
The process is optimized to ensure controlled throughput, preventing any bottlenecking, and whereas maintenance downtime is minimized by means of focused design.
