Roller levelling

Used at the end of the forming line to remove shape defects using plastic bending and stretching.

  • A sheet is driven through 3 cylinders.
  • Small contact areas require a fine mesh.
  • ALE keeps a fine mesh between the cylinders.
  • CPU : 50min (ALE) vs 2 days (Lagrangian).
