Silicon steel used for electrical applications (transformers, motors, generators) has high flatness requirements. Inadequate flatness results in lower efficiency in the final product. As a result, buckles and waves must be detected and removed.
A special case is with edge waves, which frequently occur with silicon steel. Edge waves are removed by edge trimming; however, it is difficult to judge how much of the strip needs to be removed.
