Low-tension strips for stable production processes

KOHLER has developed a new, compact precision leveling machine that has been specially designed to meet the requirements of manufacturing plugs, connectors, and electronic components.

  • Improved compliance with the required tolerances
  • Material deviations during a coil change pose no problem due to indexed, uniform tension progression
  • Reduced twisting and warping of the stamped strip material to be wound
  • Greater degree of plastification possible

KOHLER Peak Performer Part Leveling Machine

Precise leveling guarantees low-tension and level sheets and part blanks


The Peak Performer part leveling machine from KOHLER comes with a range of forward-looking technical features such as:

  • Direct drive for the leveling rollers for greater energy efficiency, less wear and a greater machinable profile
  • Advanced cleaning system for easy cleaning of the leveling rollers and supporting rollers
  • Electromechanical dynamic leveling gap control (patented) for a reliably constant gap
  • Reversible leveling rollers (patented) for a longer service life
  • Extra-wide supporting rollers for extremely stable support for the leveling rollers


Each Peak Performer operates without hydraulic systems and so combines ultimate precision with maximum efficiency as well as environmental sustainability. Reduced energy consumption, lower maintenance requirements, zero leaks, and no susceptibility to temperature fluctuations reduce costs and maximize efficiency.

When It Comes to Flexibility and Economy in Production

Leading industrial companies choose KOHLER strip feeding lines for their leveling tasks 


KOHLER develops and produces strip feeding lines for presses and automatic stamping machines, as well as cut-to-length lines, for steel service centers, mechanical engineering firms, and for the automotive industry. Strip feeding lines from KOHLER level sheets with outstanding precision. While developing our newest generation of strip feeding lines we focused on economics and efficiency:

  • Modern drive concept for the leveling rollers
    Direct drives without cardan shafts reduce the maintenance efforts and increase energetic efficiency
  • Compact design:
    The new strip leveling machine requires 20% less floor space


Precision strip leveling machines with direct drives can be delivered with up to 21 leveling rollers. The diameter can range between 40 and 65 mm depending on the application. Systems with conventional drive can also be delivered with leveling rollers in diameter range 18-30 mm.


Strip feeding lines from KOHLER level sheets with high precision. They are characterized by

  • high serviceability
  • economics and
  • longevity. 


The portfolio covers the following components:

  • Coil handling
  • Coilers
  • Levelers
  • Roller feeders
  • Shears
