Section and billet millsHot rolling
SMS group always has you in mind when we design plant and machinery exclusively for you and your products. This includes everything you want - from beams and sections to rails and semi-finished products - down to the very last detail. Also incorporated are complete rolling lines with ready-integrated heat-treatment and finishing equipment. These plants are perfect for producing e.g. head-hardened rails, which have a very long service life that makes them great for high-load applications. So you benefit measurably from our technologies because we continually improve them. That ensures they are much more cost-effective and deliver demonstrably higher quality than the alternatives.
SMS group has banked vast experience in planning and building section and billet mills. Considering our long list of almost 200 references since 1950, we enjoy the status of a true market leader in this field.
You know single-purpose rail mills are designed specifically for producing rails for railroads as well as crane rails, tram rails, and special rails. But it's also possible to use combined rail and section mills.
We developed a universal rolling method using a tandem reversing group. That ensures you can cost-effectively roll rails as well as beams and other sections on the same compact mill.
Extremely versatile, heavy section mills produce not only beams, but also channels, angles, shipbuilding sections, special sections, and sheet piles. Depending on your product range, we design your mill for the size spectrum you want. Typically, these mills produce web heights measuring up to 1,000 mm. Yet they can also handle 1,100 mm webs for super-heavy beams. Heavy section mills always come in the form of reversing mills.
You’ll find many uses for our medium section mills because they are perfect for smaller beams, channels, angles, flats as well as special sections. These mills produce web heights between approx. 100 mm and 600 mm. Whatever your product range and output, we adapt the mill stand arrangement to suit you. That’s how SMS has already implemented three different layouts for various customers. Included in the types we supply are reversing mills, semi-continuous, and fully-continuous mills.
Do you want to produce semi-finished products such as blooms, billets, hexagonal dimensions, or large round bars? We offer you two mill types that are ideal for these purposes. Blooming mills roll billets from ingots or large continuous-cast input stock. Billet mills manufacture high-quality and stainless steel products, e.g. for the automotive industry. You can vary the dimensions of your products from approx. 50 to 350 mm in diameter or edge length. One stand-out feature here is our HSC® Hydraulic Size Control. Originally engineered for our section mills, this technology ensures you achieve tolerances as close as a quarter of the DIN EN standard.
