Bar and wire rod mills

Hot Rolling

What's special about our bar and wire rod mills is not only their high flexibility, but also their proven reliability. There is an array of products our state-of-the-art mills can manufacture in one mill: angles, squares, flats, channels, rounds, and wire rod. This top versatility also means you can efficiently produce all sizes, materials, and alloys.

Rebar Mill

For producing rebars with lower operational cost and to increase the efficiency we have our High Speed Delivery system HSD® available, which allows to run with 45m/s onto the cooling bed. Compared to the traditional slitting method, conversion costs can be saved in the range of 6 to 13 Euro/ton. The Vertical Compact Coiler VCC® is todays state of the art solution for producing compact and torsion-free coils - exactly what more and more rebar processors are requiring for automatic handling in cut and bend machines.

Precision sizing mill (PSM®)

Advanced 3-roll technology with adjustment under load

There is nothing new about hydraulic adjustment under load. It's a standard feature in most modern rolling mills - such as flat, rail, section, or seamless tube rolling mills. The way we integrate this technology in our PSM® makes the most of its strengths.



New: online measuring system with light section technology

The new measuring gauge at the exit side of the 3-roll block applies light section technology. Using our laser/image technology, four sensors perform synchronous, contact-free measurements over the entire cross section of the bar. There are no moving or oscillating parts, making the system almost maintenance-free. It achieves a scanning rate of 500 scans per second. That's why the system can produce a true-shape cross-section from up to 400 synchronous measuring points in a shared coordination system. You can see the result displayed with utmost precision.

Electrical and automation systems



Quiet revolution in wire rod production

Our MEERdrive® technology makes roll ring management significantly easier, offers exceptional pass design flexibility, and minimizes maintenance. Precise rolling process control guarantees the required end product properties. Our system also optimizes roll ring utilization and slashes energy consumption. Why? Because individual motors operate much more efficiently than group drives.
