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 inches wide.
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.
