Stainless Steel Tension Leveling
Tension leveling is a process intended to correct shape and flatness issues caused by cold rolling stainless coil. The process straightens and flattens the strip thereby improving overall coil quality.
Elongating and bending the strip through a series of work rolls eliminates edge wave, center buckle, crossbow, and coil set. Reduction of non-uniform internal stresses in the strip will decrease or eliminate camber and improve performance in downstream production processes.
