Achieving true flatness on light gauge quench & tempered plate has always been a challenge due to the violent forces of the heat treating process and the high strength of the steel.
There has never been a 100% domestic supplier that can consistently supply truly flat, light gauge, high strength steel plate… until now.
CMC Impact Metals is setting the new standard for flatness on light gauge Q&T products with TRUFLAT technology through our new state-of-the-art and first-of-its-kind process. We can achieve previously unattainable flatness levels on high strength plate, abrasion resistant plate, and armor plate.
Most leveling processes cannot deliver the power required to flatten high strength plate products without imparting significant unequal stresses into the material. This results in plate that immediately warps and moves when cutting or forming due to the residual internal stress. Our process has been designed specifically to combat these stresses and provide our customers with a high quality, consistently flat plate.
As a result, we guarantee a flatness of ¼ ASTM A6 on all our plate products .300” and thinner.
