Tension leveling is the process of removing shape imperfections from running metal sheet and strip by elongating the strip using a combination of tension and bending around small-diameter work rolls. These shape imperfections include long edges, quarter buckle, center buckle, and camber. Tension levelers can be incorporated into lines for galvanizing or coil coating or provided as stand-alone tension leveling lines.
ADS manufactures a number of different tension levelers depending on material type, material thickness, and yield strength. Nothing flattens strip better than an ADS tension leveling system. And the strip stays flat after it is sheared or blanked because there are no residul stresses to deform the part.We design and build stand-alone tension leveling lines or integrate tension leveling into your continuous processing lines.
