With increasing yield points, the forces that occur during the leveling process and the thereby necessary driving torque also increase. An appropriately sized leveler machine is therefore a prerequisite for processing high-tensile sheets in order to meet the demanding requirements for evenness and surface quality.
Among others, for the usage in high strength steels SCHNUTZ has developed the multi-motor drive. Here, the guide rollers are driven not by one, but in groups of several motors. This technology has a number of important advantages:
