Bright steel linesProcessing
Clean, smooth surfaces, high dimensional accuracy, and amazingly low-cost to produce - these are the benefits that make bright steel so valuable to many industries. Typical here is the example of automotive manufacturing: car makers use bright steel for steering and drive components, piston rods, and suspension springs. But, as you know, bright steel is also crucial in engineering, equipment manufacturing, and the medical industry.
SMS group is a world leader in integrated plants for producing semi-finished steel and non-ferrous products. We have banked more than 80 years’ experience in making machinery to draw, peel, and grind bright steel. It’s an expertise stretching back to the heritage brands of Schumag and Kieserling which have been part of SMS group since 2008.
SMS group offers you high-performance, combined drawing lines for round, square, hexagonal, and special-shaped bars. Starting from safe loading of the uncoiler through to the finished bar bundle, our engineers ensure your line components are perfectly tailored to your specific requirements. Depending on your application, you can choose from two types of continuous drawing systems: conventional cam- type drawing machines, and chain track drawing machines. Both guarantee optimal production efficiency and high-quality finished products.
SMS group supplies both standalone peelers and complex integrated peeling lines featuring a maximum level of automation. Included here are bar-to-bar and coil-to- bar operating modes for cylindrical, conical and, double cone bars, as well as coil- to-coil operation. Always at the heart of these bright steel centers is our PM (peeling machine) technology. That ensures you achieve the highest standards in quality, productivity, and flexibility.
High rigidity, excellent dynamic behavior and low vibrations: it's no wonder our customers have relied on our centerless grinders for more than 65 years. All Schleipo type grinders operate with a constant grinding axis. That eliminates lateral adjustment of the bar guides and creates ideal conditions for fast, high-quality grinding and polishing.
Whether two-millimeter thin wire or anything up to formats a hundred times larger - SMS group supplies the right straightening solution for all your long products. Especially crucial for the straightness of bright steel bars are, for example, piston rods and printer feed shafts.
No stores, no personnel costs - and yet all parts are on hand: These are the advantages of the warehousing service offered, under which SMS group manage the storage of spare parts on the customer's behalf by SULB.
Unwanted downtimes are history
This forward-looking development and implementation of an advanced spare parts supply concept reduces the servicing times and prevents unwanted downtimes.
The availability of spare and wear parts is ensured by three-shift operation of the warehouse, available on a 24/7 basis. The entire warehouse concept was originated in close coordination with SULB. The customer has access to the whole storage system at any time and thus has complete cost transparency. The stock is retrievable online around the clock. SULB is just one of several examples in which the SMS group has assumed warehouse management.
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.
