JDM Steel Service Installs Red Bud .500” Stretcher Leveler


JDM Steel Service of Chicago Heights, Illinois, installed a Red Bud Industries’ .500” (13 mm) x 72” (1830 mm) Stretcher Leveler.

The Stretcher was installed in an existing line as part of a major upgrade of JDM’s processing capabilities. The Stretcher Leveler will process material up to .500” (13 mm) at 72” (1830 mm) wide.

Due to trapped internal stresses, once material is cut, it can spring back. Stretcher leveling exceeds the yield in all of the material top to bottom and side to side, produces flat material that is significantly more stable than any other product available and eliminates the possibility of springback.
