Linköping, (PresseBox) - Böhler-Uddeholm, Austria, has placed an order for five flatness measurement systems with Shapeline, Sweden, for measuring on their strip products. The order is the continuation of a successful cooperation with Shapeline systems at the Böhler-Uddeholm plants in Munkfors, Sweden, and Böhlerwerk, Austria.
