Athader And Leveltek Sign Strategic Agreement For Stretch Leveler Cut-To-Length Lines
Renteria, Spain - Athader, A Bradbury Group Company located
in Spain, has signed a strategic agreement with Leveltek International, a U.S. company, for the worldwide supply of stretch leveling cut-to-length lines after being awarded a contract by a well-known European service center for a line of this type.
This will be the third installation of a Athader/Leveltek stretch leveler CTL line.
ATHADER-LEVELTEK stretch leveler cut-to-length lines incorporate the latest developments to improve efficiency in processes and production including:
• Automatic coil loading and threading
• Pre-leveler for crossbow and coil set correction
• Brushing system for scale and dust removal
• Leveltek proprietary non-marking grips
• Flying shear
and highly automated sheet bundle storage system
• System for monitoring production and incidents on the line using Athader’s Matrix software which integrates with the customer’s management systems.
These features result in a 50% production increase compared to stretch cut-to-length lines with a start-stop shear.
Installation costs for these lines are substantially less since no special pit or foundation is required for the flying shear and stretch leveler. For this reason, ATHADER-LEVELTEK offer rebuilds of cut-to-length lines replacing roller levelers with stretch
With this agreement, Athader expands its technological solutions for leveling steel coils by offering:
• Roller mechanical levelers – Athader.
• Hydraulic e-Drive levelers – Bradbury.
• Stretch levelers – Leveltek.
The agreement also strengthens the presence of both companies for projects requiring stretch leveling in new lines and existing line upgrades.
