Bright steel linesProcessing
Clean, smooth surfaces, high dimensional accuracy, and amazingly low-cost to produce - these are the benefits that make bright steel so valuable to many industries. Typical here is the example of automotive manufacturing: car makers use bright steel for steering and drive components, piston rods, and suspension springs. But, as you know, bright steel is also crucial in engineering, equipment manufacturing, and the medical industry.
SMS group is a world leader in integrated plants for producing semi-finished steel and non-ferrous products. We have banked more than 80 years’ experience in making machinery to draw, peel, and grind bright steel. It’s an expertise stretching back to the heritage brands of Schumag and Kieserling which have been part of SMS group since 2008.
SMS group offers you high-performance, combined drawing lines for round, square, hexagonal, and special-shaped bars. Starting from safe loading of the uncoiler through to the finished bar bundle, our engineers ensure your line components are perfectly tailored to your specific requirements. Depending on your application, you can choose from two types of continuous drawing systems: conventional cam- type drawing machines, and chain track drawing machines. Both guarantee optimal production efficiency and high-quality finished products.
SMS group supplies both standalone peelers and complex integrated peeling lines featuring a maximum level of automation. Included here are bar-to-bar and coil-to- bar operating modes for cylindrical, conical and, double cone bars, as well as coil- to-coil operation. Always at the heart of these bright steel centers is our PM (peeling machine) technology. That ensures you achieve the highest standards in quality, productivity, and flexibility.
High rigidity, excellent dynamic behavior and low vibrations: it's no wonder our customers have relied on our centerless grinders for more than 65 years. All Schleipo type grinders operate with a constant grinding axis. That eliminates lateral adjustment of the bar guides and creates ideal conditions for fast, high-quality grinding and polishing.
Whether two-millimeter thin wire or anything up to formats a hundred times larger - SMS group supplies the right straightening solution for all your long products. Especially crucial for the straightness of bright steel bars are, for example, piston rods and printer feed shafts.
However, not only a service partner for your plants and machines, SMS group is also there for your staff. Furthermore, You can enroll on standardized and individual training programs designed for you by our SMS TECademy. That ensures you strengthen your competence as a plant owner.
Whether you require one-off equipment checks, continuous condition monitoring, remote service, or regular plant inspections: our service experts will take care of it all. You can even outsource your complete maintenance operations to us. This ensures excellent plant availability plus best production results.
When the spare parts you need are no longer available or the new generation is not 100% compatible, you risk plant standstills. That's why SMS group constantly monitors the availability of all parts and, where necessary, offers modern alternatives - even for parts from third-party suppliers. This ensures competitiveness and full productivity over the entire life cycle of your plant.
Even plants "built to last" need to be critically examined from time to time, because markets and production processes are continuously evolving. Together with you, our service experts will find the best revamp options for your requirements. Once again bang up to date, your plants will then be ready to bolster your strong position on the market.
