at METEC 2023: TechnologiesWorld Premiere of the Super Hybrid Leveler/Splitter Line
JP Steel Plantech Co., the steelmaking plant engineering manufacturer (head office in Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa; President and Representative Director: Keiji Wakahara), will give a presentation at METEC 2023 (the International Metallurgical Trade Fair with Congresses*) to be held on June 14, 2023 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The presentation will outline the technology of the super hybrid leveler/slitter line, which we have developed for high-performance metal plates/sheets.
This line is a composite facility that has both tension lever and roller leveler functions. The line manufactures high-strength, high-precision steel plates/sheets with high flatness, such as ultra-high-strength steel for automobiles, which has recently been seeing increasing demand. Commercial operation of the line started in 2020 in Japan and operation is now stable.
We hope that advertising our proven technology to the world at large will further improve our presence.

METEC 2023 (International Metallurgical Trade Fair with Congresses):
METEC is a trade fair for metallurgical technologies held once every four years. Nearly 2,000 exhibitors showcase their latest products and technologies at this trade fair.
Period: June 12 to 16, 2023
Venue: Messeplatz Düsseldorf
Host: Messe Düsseldorf GmbH
Tension levelers level and improve the flatness of materials such as hot rolled steel, cold rolled steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper and specialized materials, and finish them into a final product. The range of the materials that can be used for leveling are those with a thickness of between 0.05mm-8.0mm, a width of between 300m-2,300mm and a yield strength of between 50MPa-1,500MPa. Tests of various materials using original testing equipment have been carried out on Steel Plantech’s tension levelers since 1970. Theories have been constructed, tested, and supply of tension levelers made, with this repeated many times over the years. 194 sets have been supplied around the world, practically making Steel Plantech a specialist in tension levelers.
