Roll levelling or roll flattening
Following a substantial investment, we are able to offer state of the art roll levelling roll flattening for gauge plate, ground flat stock steel with a machine which has a bed width of 1250mm and which can flatten most materials from 1.5mm up to 20mm in thickness to a good level of flatness. The make and model of machine is believed to be currently the only one of its type in operation in the United Kingdom.
The roll flattening roll levelling process improves the quality of flat metal work pieces and components and this in turn reduces difficulties in their subsequent manufacture and assembly. Areas where the roll flattening of components may be applied beneficially would be:- in the manufacture of electrical appliances, industrial equipment and machinery, especially where punching, nibbling, shearing and laser cutting processes are used, also in tools and straight and circular blades.
We have our own in-house fully-skilled apprentice trained smithing capability.
