BUILDING STRETCH LEVELER AND OTHER COIL PROCESSING EQUIPMENT SINCE 1964

WORLD CLASS LEVELING TECHNOLOGY

Delta’s Stretch Leveler has become an integral part of the Delta Steel technologies product line.

DELTA uses the most advanced materials and processes to ensure the functionality, longevity and maintainability of the equipment.

Steel is rarely perfect, and our intent is to get it there. The robustness and installed power of our levelers give our steel mill and service center customers that extra power to get the tough coils and/or plates flat.

LEVELING TECHNOLOGY

 

The key to corrective leveling is strength and rigidity. Because our wedge-type leveler design maximizes this when compared to hydraulic levelers. Any change to the basic design made only for the sake of change would not provide a benefit to the end user and would not address any specific industry needs. That said, we are constantly looking for ways to better meet industry needs.

What specific needs currently exist in the marketplace that may require design innovation within your product offering?

One of the largest needs facing the industry today is material that will remain flat. Even after subsequent manufacturing processes, such as laser or plasma cutting.

We have addressed this specific need with a new technology called ELT or Enhanced Leveling Technology.

We developed this technology by drawing upon more than 70 years of leveling experience and more than 1,650 leveling system installations. Because this technology is an extension of our core competency and it addresses a specific need in the industry. We were confident in expending the resources required for its development. Currently, there are three of these systems in operation, with a fourth on order. 

Our customers are developing new opportunities by providing more consistent products more efficiently and affordably using this technology. The fundamental need for stay-flat sheet is met through a unique combination of leveling knowledge and control technology. A discrete sheet process technology allows great versatility in configuring a custom delivery system at lower investment levels than are traditionally available. Also of importance is the need to level high-strength steels. 

Many of these steels exhibit high strain hardening characteristics. In other words, during plastic deformation and straining, the strength of these steels can increase significantly. Because of the inherent high strength of these steels, and their tendency to strain harden further, the forces and power required to level are much higher. Leveling these types of high-strength materials represents a significant engineering challenge, one that is perfectly suited for Delta. Our new generation of leveling systems in development will meet this industry need. These are the types of design changes that we consider true innovation.
