Shape and dimensional tolerances

Shape and dimensional tolerances

The specified values for wide strip do not apply to the uncropped ends of the coil (‘head’ and ‘tail’). The length of these uncropped ends is calculated using the following formula:

length (in metres) = 90/nominal thickness (in mm), with a maximum of 20 metres.

If required, this part of the coil can be removed, however an additional cost may be charged for this.

Tolerances  in mm for wide strip and slit wide strip
The tolerances for wide strip and slit wide strip comply with standard EN 10051:2010.

The specified values for wide strip do not apply to the uncropped ends of the coil (‘head’ and ‘tail’). The length of these uncropped ends is calculated using the following formula:
length (in metres) = 90/nominal thickness (in mm), with a maximum of 20 metres.

If required, this part of the coil can be removed, however an additional cost may be charged for this.

Edge camber

The deviation from the edge over a length of 5000mm:

• with mill edges, no more than 20mm
• with trimmed edges, no more than 15mm

Flatness

Requirements as regards flatness can be agreed at the time of enquiry.

Option for maximum crown values

The following high crown C40 options available for hot-rolled products.

Crown values on the C20-position as well as minimum crown values on both C20 and C40 position are also available on request.
