CHICAGO Samuel, Son &
Co. Ltd.s service center in Nisku, Alberta, is installing
a continuous cut-to-length line and a Herr-Voss leveling system
to process sheet and plate up to ⅜ inch thick and 96
The leveling line bridges the
gap between temper rolling and tension leveling, and will
produce a flat-rolled steel product that will set the benchmark
in flatness required for downstream processes such as plasma
and laser cutting, Tom McGrogan, president of Samuels
Canadian service center division, said in a statement.
The leveling line is the latest
in a series of expansion activities in Nisku, Alberta,
according to Mississauga, Ontario-based Samuel.
"In addition to doubling our
size to 100,000 square feet, we have added a second 400-amp
plasma plate burner," regional vice president and general
manager Doug Hlady said.
The cut-to-length line also features stenciling capability.
Samuel expects to have the first product off the line during
the fourth quarter.
