Knowing the advantages and benefits of “HIGHSL Panel-Flat that Stays Flat” sheet and plate

One of the key emerging trends in our steel service center industry is the need to eliminate internal stresses and flatness problems in sheet and plate. We surveyed our customers and they confirmed that their number one headache is “flatness problems and the elimination of internal stresses.”

We responded by investing $10 million in a state-of-the-art Red Bud Industries stretcher leveler that is equipped with two in-line Bradbury roller levelers, one of which has advanced e-Drive technology. This advanced technology can process material from .060 through .500 thick up to 72″ wide by 480″ long. Our line is currently the only processing line of its type in the United States providing the highest level of flatness available in the industry, exceeding that of temper mills and stretcher levelers with only flatteners or straighteners.
