Metal production mills produce flat metal sheet and strip products into coil forms that are subjected to further fabrication for shape correction. This article provides a discussion on the principle of shape correction and describes the role of various fabrication processes in shape correction. These processes include flattening, leveling, slitting, and cut-to-length.
