The SuPerLeveler™ was developed by JP Steel Plantech in 1998 as equipment to improve the flatness of steel plates (6 mm to 50 mm thick) produced in plate mills. Warping generated in the leveler (surface preparation materials to increase horizontal precision) during correction is also completely corrected through infinity control of rigidity. This has made it possible to flatten TMCP steel plates, hardened steel plates, and other steel plates that require straightening reaction, and which did not become stable using conventional levelers.
Skin Pass Mills
The device uses skin pass rolling to improve the mechanical properties and surface texture, and improve flatness, in order to form materials such as hot-rolled steel sheets, cold-rolled steel sheets, stainless steel plates, and aluminum plates into final products. Since it conducted tests with its own test equipment in 1965, Steel Plantech has continued to develop theories and deliver actual devices. As a result, the company has delivered 63 skin pass mills worldwide up to this point in time.
