Which advantage is there to have a tight thickness tolerance?
The tight thickness tolerance homogenizes the plates between them, making their springback more predictable after bending for instance. This homogenization eases chain work by reducing the recalibration of production tools and so, enhances your productivity. And at last it improves weight design optimization of final applications.
What is “class S” flatness?
Class S is a high level of flatness quality available for Quard and Quend plates. This performance helps you to improve plate processing in your workshop. So you can reduce time for alignment and fixturing when welding, cutting or machining the plates. It grants also low residual stresses in the plate, and thus shape stability. It allows moreover a more accurate design of produced parts. This superior workability is a key factor in your enhanced productivity.
Is preheating useful before cutting my plates?
The best way to avoid problems with cut edge cracking is to preheat prior cutting. The need for preheating and to which temperature, depends on the steel grade and plate thickness. Please find all details about cutting your plates in our technical recommendations or ask them to our dedicated collaborators.
Can I cut Quard and Quend plates with laser cutting?
Both Quard and Quend are suitable for laser cutting, no matter if your plates are primer coated or simply delivered as black. Please find all details about laser cutting your plates in our technical recommendations or ask them to our dedicated collaborators.
