Continuous caster for flat products

High-productivity plants

There have been several major milestones in the history of SMS group and its predecessor companies (Schloemann, Concast, and Mannesmann Demag). They all testify to 50 years of leadership in continuous casting. This means that the thin, medium, and thick slabs you produce on our continuous casters form your ideal basis for superior steel products.

That's how we meet market demand as well as your specific requirements. It also means that the thin, medium, and thick slabs you produce on our continuous casters form your ideal basis for superior steel products.

Innovative strand guide roller

Strand guide rollers are crucial for manufacturing high-quality steel slabs. Ideal here is our STEC-Roll® solution. We have already installed it in several new plants. Plus, if you have axle rollers with rotating axles from other manufacturers and drive rollers with split bearings on your existing segment frames, it's easy to replace them with STEC-Roll®. No further changes are necessary.
