Bar and wire rod millsHot 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.

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.
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.
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.
There are two versions of our CCT® system:
- The CCT® offline system for simulating the temperature gradient in the mill and calculating setpoints for the water cooling boxes and blowers.
- The CCT® online system for controlling the given parameters by performing online changes in the water cooling box and blower setup.
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.
Plain bearings and high-precision bearing in wire rod mills have to cope with extreme stresses because they are subject to high rotational speeds and dynamic loads. To take the strain, our bearings are precision-fitted and designed for maximum service life. That ensures top process stability.
Applying today's most advanced guide technology in your wire rod mill gives you a real competitive edge. That's because the trend toward ever-faster rolling requires precise and reliable guiding of long products. Associated with that is easy, quick adjustment of the guide equipment. MEERguides® meet these high demands with their robust structure and simple, precise setting. Truly innovative here is the sophisticated design which ensures the guides operate efficiently and effectively. They accommodate rolling speeds in excess of 120 m/s, with finishing sizes ranging from 4.5 mm to 26 mm.
Precision for bar mills
Growing demands on the tolerances and surface finish of rolled stock require ever better mechanical equipment. To guarantee top performance, quality, and reliability, we continually analyze and improve our MEERguides® for bar mills. This much is certain, even in tough production environments, the stainless steel structure and robust design ensure reliable production. You can rely on precision guidance of product dimensions from 6 mm to 130 mm in diameter.
What you get
- Simple, robust design
- Suitable for any wire rod block
The Integrated Maintenance Management System (IMMS) is a combination of a CMMS software and valuable data based on decades of SMS experience. From elaborate analyses and existing documents, SMS creates a plant specific, customized package of component- related maintenance strategies for technically and commercially effective maintenance.
IMMS® - steps required for a complete maintenance system
Remote access to the machine control system for fault analysis is possible only after authentication by the customer. Direct analysis and evaluation of the operating parameters are performed online by the SMS Service employees. They can easily identify defects and malfunctions and initiate measures for fault elimination. Remote access also allows the system software to be updated. Naturally, the installation of the necessary hardware and software for the remote access is already included in the remote service.
