Strip shape

Thanks to continuous improvements to manufacturing processes, all PowerCore® grades display a very flat strip shape. However, owing to physical conditions during rolling, thickness variations over strip width can only be reduced to a limited extent.

Thickness deviations

Thickness deviations Unit NOMINAL THICKNESS inm mm
0,35 0,50 0,65 1,00
Max. deviation from nominal thickness % ±8 ±6 ±5 ±5
Max. thickness variation parallel to rolling direction within one sheet or strip with a length of 2 m % 6 4 4 4
Max. variation of thickness transverse to rolling direction at a minimum distance of 30 mm from the edge mm 0,02 0,02 0,03 0,03
Attainable strip shape depends on the hot strip shape, the rolling technology, the reduction during cold rolling/final thickness as well as on the forming properties of the material. For this reason, certain requirements can only be met by additional edge trimming.
