All major SMS group innovations over the last 30 years have been fully developed to market readiness with our own electrical and automation systems.
Our modular automation packages work outstandingly along the entire metallurgical process chain, from the initial planning of a new plant, trough upgrading and modernizing.
We offer not only general products and solutions for all plant types, but also specific plant-related solutions.
Our Electrics and Automation Division carries out extensive integration tests on your system, and also instructs your personnel on how to operate it. Long before installation at your facility the automation system is tested and optimized under near-reality conditions, using a simulation model that maps the entire mechanics, drive technology, and process.
It’s an added advantage that SMS group employees train your future operators on the original control panels. This involves virtual production where your personnel gets to know the functions of the plant and how to use it in realistic operation situations. As a result, Plug & Work ensures a rapid runup of your plant.
Our new X-Pact® Vision - Operation and Visualization concept covers every demand of a modern, highly automated plant.
This set of highly optimized features enables operators to control and enhance complex plant processes at any time. Web based reporting allows the process access everywhere.
Keeping pace with the market requirements is an ongoing challenge for producers in general. The overcapacity in the world’s steel production tells us that new plants will only be built to a limited extent.
The producers will more thoroughly check their existing facilities and investigate modernization scenarios to suit their strategic positioning in the market. World class suppliers like SMS group may assist with their vast experience and work out roadmaps together with the plant users.
As a globally leading manufacturer of metallurgical plants, we supply flexible, fairly priced, and tailor-made solutions based on profound expertise.
They meet all requirements of today’s metallurgical plant and rolling mill technology. This is how we make companies worldwide fit for future challenges and opportunities, also by providing cutting-edge electrical and automation systems. Positive feedback from our customers after numerous successfully implemented projects confirms the effectiveness of our modernization concepts.
