Corrective Leveler

Corrective levelers are typically used for leveling material from 0.005″ to 0.25″ (0.13 to 6.3 mm) thick. Corrective levelers have bank-type height adjustment of the rollers and also have flights of backup rolls that can be adjusted to induce roll bending on the work rolls. This type of roll bend control allows for correction of some coil strip defects, such as edge wave, center buckle, and camber. Closed loop positioning control allows for generating machine setting recipes for common strip and material runs.

Corrective Leveler options

With any Element leveler, we offer several options that are available to increase the productivity of your equipment. Some of the options that we offer to maximize the capacity of our levelers include:

  • Stacking sections are available to stack leveled plates into bundles for shipment.
  • Variable roll geometry options are available to provide additional bending capabilities.
  • Closed loop positioning control allows for generating machine setting recipes for common plate runs.

Corrective Leveler Experience

Element has supplied corrective levelers for:

  • Steel
  • Copper
  • Brass materials
  • Aluminum

A Leveler can be used to remove flatness defects from many different materials. Element Machinery has built levelers for correction of flatness defects in materials. The yield strength of the material also determines the overall size of machine necessary.

  • Allen Bradley
  • Siemens
  • ABB
  • Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Copper/Brass
  • Integrated Mills
  • Mini Mills
  • Aerospace/Military
  • Manufacturing
  • Service Centers
  • Construction
Tolerances Levelers are used to remove defects from material to raise the classification of material per an industry standard or to support downstream processing of the material. Typical industry standards that can be used to establish these tolerances include:

Materials Some advanced features Element has supplied in the past include:

  • Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Titanium
  • Clad Materials



Plate levelers flatten both thin and heavy gauge materials. They typically have individual roll adjustment with closed loop control (position/force), therefore allowing for generating machine setting recipes to make operator’s jobs easier.  Furthermore, each roll may be driven through a distribution box or individual drives.


Corrective levelers straighten thinner materials and have bank-type adjustment of work rolls.  They are also equipped with multiple flights of backup rolls. In order to correct minor strip shape defects, roll bending is similarly made possible by adjusting the backup flights.


Tension levelers level material by stretching it into plastic deformation. In order to achieve the high amounts of tension necessary, a tension leveler utilizes bridle rolls to isolate tension for leveling.  The bridle roll design also allows for controlling tension at upstream and downstream coilers.
