SMS group drive technology features above all rolling mill drive trains, converter tilt drives, as well as shear and coiler drives. Paramount here are power upgrades, plus improving the reliability of existing plants.
Today's trend of rolling high-strength materials requires higher torque capabilities at the drive train. That's where SMS group comes in with its drive technology to meet this demand.
It all starts with systematic investigation of your drive trains. Applying our rolling process know-how, we identify measures to improve your equipment. Furthermore, comprehensive world-wide service including gear inspections, repairs, and emergency response is part of our corporate philosophy. Wherever existing spare parts fail to make the grade, we refine them to the state of the art.
We are one of the few manufacturers worldwide capable of producing case-hardened gearwheels up to a diameter of 4,500 mm and modulus of 40 mm.
SMS group advanced gear design features case-hardened gears and our newly developed SIEFLEX®-HT gear-type spindles. That makes it easy to transform existing drive trains to new levels. What's more, increasing the transmission ratio on the main gear unit means your plant will achieve higher rolling torques.
Whether you operate BOF or AOD converters, our tilt drives provide the reliability you want and need. It's the job of tilt drives to turn the converter vessel in a controlled manner into the filling, emptying, and sampling positions. We have developed special solutions both for BOF and AOD converters.
Always dedicated to top quality, we manufacture our drive components at our workshop in Hilchenbach, Germany.
