Leveling flat-rolled strip
Operating a leveler requires training and skill, but computers are making the task much easier. A computer can quickly set the machine to a good starting point and allow very fine adjustment of the back-ups. Once the leveler is delivering good results on a particular coil, the settings can be saved and called up later. That saves setup time when coils are partially run and then sent back to stock.

Mission: Spectacular scrap handling operations
Stampers, precariously squeezed by tight margins, high material costs, and increasing pressure to be leaner, have issued a request: we want our scrap handling operations to be faster, trouble-free, and more productive. Fortunately, the latest generation of scrap handling equipment makes that mission possible. New machinery, trending toward a greater use of invisible forces and high-tech gadgetry befitting a spy thriller, is equipped with sensors, edge-guide systems, automation, and magnetic forces, equipment manufacturers say. In addition, significant improvements have been made to the scrap handling equipment itself to save space, minimize jams, and to keep it moving.

A focus on slitting lines
As manufacturing has moved overseas, the U.S. slitting market has become saddled with overcapacity. Coil processors can improve efficiencies by upgrading the equipment they use in the following areas: coil storage, changeovers in coil and slitting tooling; scrap handling; and tensioning.
