World´s widest leveler running with Shapeline gauge

Shapeline gauge successfully installed and running in Nippon Steel No 1-line in Japan, Oita.

The novel Oita Plate Leveler (OPL) is unique of its kind. The OPL works as a skin-pass mill for plates, with the rolling force controllable in 19 sectors across the plate width. The Shapeline system now provides data correlated to the position of these 19 sectors to control the leveler and improve plate flatness.
