HSLA Roller Levelers in Press Feed Systems

B&K® Precision HSLA Roller Levelers meet the leveling requirements of high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) steel. While some manufactures shy away from HSLA materials, B&K® Precision HSLA Roller Levelers have been specifically designed to meet the challenge. In facilities where HSLA blanks are produced to support transfer operations at other locations, companies are finding out that a straightener works the material only
enough to remove coil set as the blanks are cut. When the blanks sit over time, the coil set can reappear within the blanks. For these applications, a Coil Press Feed System supplied with a Roller Leveler in place of the straightener can provide the solution.

B&K® Precision HSLA Roller Levelers can be supplied in a new Press Feed Line or retrofitted into an existing Press Feed System to precisely control flatness of your HSLA finished parts. Precision Roller Levelers are much better at removing coil set and crossbow than coil straighteners or coil flatteners. This arrangement allows the material to be worked beyond the yield point to remove trapped material stresses. The result is material that is more stable so that part quality is consistent. The material thickness range and the materials yield point determine the Roller Leveler work roll diameter.

 

30 HP AC Vector drive Roller Leveler with encoder feedback

This B&K Precision Leveler has been integrated into a new Press Feed Line
B&K® 36" 2.25 HSLA Roller Leveler was designed to process material from .021” to .120” thickness with a yield strength of 135,000 PSI. The B&K® Precision HSLA Roller Leveler shown above was integrated in a new CWP Press Feed Line. A 30 HP AC Vector drive with encoder feedback was supplied to precisely regulate the line speed up to 100FPM and reduce coil clockspringing. A Custom Consolidated Control Package including pushbutton controlled thread up was included. A multi-color diagnostic touchscreen interface provides operator prompting of threading procedures, a maintenance schedule with service points for the entire system, on-screen digital roll position readouts, and in-depth diagnostic fault messages with recommended remedies.

The B&K® Precision 36" 2.25 HSLA Roller Leveler

A B&K 60-1.156 Precision Corrective Leveler integrated into a new CWP Press Feed Line
The B&K® Precision 36" 2.25 HSLA Roller Leveler shown above was integrated in a new Press Feed Line supplied by CWP. This 5-high Roller Leveler had 3 back-up flights with a single adjustable back-up flight, to provide shape correction. A 30 HP AC Vector drive with encoder feedback was supplied to precisely regulate the line speed.

A high lift head is standard for easy roll cleaning with HSLA Roller Levelers

B&K® 36" 2.25 HSLA Roller Leveler was designed to process material from .021” to .120” thickness with a yield strength of 135,000 PSI. The B&K® Precision HSLA Roller Leveler shown above was integrated into a new Press Feed Line supplied by CWP. This 5-high Roller Leveler had 3 back-up flights with a single adjustable back-up flight, to provide shape correction on HSLA material used to stamp automotive clutch, brake, and transmission parts. A 50 HP AC Vector drive with encoder feedback was supplied to precisely regulate the line speeds up to150 FPM. A high lift head is standard for easy roll cleaning.

B&K® 42" 2.25 HSLA Roller Leveler

A B&K 60-1.156 Precision Corrective Leveler integrated into a new CWP Press Feed Line

B&K® 42" 2.25 HSLA Roller Leveler was designed to process material from .021" to .110" thickness with a yield strength of 115,000 PSI. The B&K® Precision HSLA Roller Leveler shown above was integrated with an existing uncoiler. A heavy duty material debender with an upper and lower hydraulically adjusted wing bender was supplied for ease of material thread-up from the existing uncoiler. This 5-high Roller Leveler had 5 back-up flights with three adjustable back-up flights, to provide shape correction on HSLA material used to stamp automotive transmission parts. Precision Roller Levelers eliminate coil shape defects that simple flatteners cannot remove. Small diameter leveler rolls with roller back-ups produce flat sheet free of stresses. The Flat parts stay flat and round parts stay round. A 50 HP AC Vector drive with encoder feedback was supplied to precisely regulate the line speed of 100 FPM. A Custom Consolidated Control Package including pushbutton controlled thread up was included. A multi-color diagnostic touchscreen interface provides operator prompting of threading procedures, a maintenance schedule with service points for the entire system, on-screen digital roll position readouts, and in-depth diagnostic fault messages with recommended remedies. The advanced engineering design of the B&K® backed-up roller leveler makes this unit a “one-operator” piece of equipment. The ease of operation reduces the need for operator skill, making for a better end product. B&K® provides models for most gauge ranges, for applications in sheet leveling, parts leveling, cut-to-length lines, and other process lines.

B & K® 36 2.25 HSLA Corrective Leveler

B & K 36 in. 2.25 in. HSLA Corrective Leveler

B & K® 36 2.25 HSLA Corrective Leveler was incorporated into a CWP® Press Feed System to process .021 - .110 thick material with yield strengths of 130,000 psi. A 15,000 lb. coil car and uncoiler were provided along with secondary hold down arms and confining chute due to high strength material thread up requirements. A heavy duty hydraulic cropping shear was supplied to remove damaged lead and trailing edges of coil and allow for enhanced partial coil operations. The leveler was supplied with heavy duty pinch rolls and dual herringbone gearbox driven design to ensure proper operation when processing the high yield heavy material. A consolidated control platform with complete full color HMI offer easy setup and hands free thread up of the system.
