Annealing and Galvanizing linesProcessing
It has been proven that SMS has the competence to design, engineer, erect and put into operation modern cold strip processing lines. Supported by the various specialized companies within the SMS group, which offer equipment and services for annealing lines and galvanizing lines the lines are delivered from a single system supplier.
Multi-phase steels, which are high strength and very ductile, are increasingly being used for car components. These high-strength yet easily deformable steels must meet the highest quality requirements for use in automobiles.
Annealing and galvanizing lines from the SMS group are characterized in particular by the excellent quality of the end product, high efficiency and economy, as well as enormous capacities. In recent years various improvements and new technical solutions have been developed, particularly regarding line concepts, furnace technology, galvanizing technology and post-treatment.
In the lines, account is taken of the stringent demands on surface quality. This commences with cleaning, which is followed by surface-friendly annealing, and high-grade coating technologies for the application of a zinc layer, passivation or preserving oils. Advanced annealing and cooling strategies are implemented, together with a skin-pass millstand for targeted post-treatment, in order to achieve outstanding material strengths.
Precise, fast and reliable. The X-Pro Laser welder from SMS group for continuous production of difficult-to-weld steel grades.

- Outstanding homogenous coating results using a minimum metallayer
- Special features allow highest surface qualities (C surfaces) and resource savings
- Stable strip run in the air-knife due to electromagnetic strip stabilizer
A key quality characteristic of the hot-dip galvanizing lines is the accuracy of the coating thickness; complying with narrow coating tolerances means you also save zinc and cut production costs
- Integrated solutions consisting of mechanics, electrics, and automation
- The benefits of long-term experience with X-Pact® world-leading automation
- Energy distribution and drive systems
- The only genuine future-proof automation system
- Control stations designed around the operator
- Innovative HMI system for production-centered operation
- Plug & Work integration test, process and production simulation, near-reality 3D visualization
- All-inclusive modernization

The SMS group repairs and restores zinc pot equipment. Results: Reliable performance and superior final product quality
Scope of Service:
- Resurfacing and coating of rolls
- Replacing of bearing systems.
- Repairing and rebuilding of complete pot rigs, arms, rolls and bearings.
Campaign life or up to 8 weeks. Reduced roll inventory and overall maintenance costs.
Peel-off effects damage the furnace roll and thus the strip surfaces causing the
final product to be unusable e.g. for automotive applications. With its wide range of surface coating for the intended use, SMS prolongs the service life of furnace rolls and guarantees a high strip quality.
- Metal alloy
- Cermet compound material
Pick-up reduction by up to 93% increases campaign life.
