PT. Gunung Indonesia

SMS group supplied the complete basic and detail engineering, the mechanical and electrical core components and the supervision of erection and commissioning. The SMS group scope of supply furthermore includes the complete X-Pact® electrical and automation system including Level 2 automation and commissioning according to the tried and tested "Plug&Work" concept.  

The continuous caster is designed for the production of slabs with thicknesses of 220 and 250 millimeters and widths from 800 to 2,100 millimeters. The range of grades produced will comprise structural steels as well as pipe and heavy-plate grades.  

The segments are equipped with STEC-Roll® technology. Rolls of this technology optimize the casting process and set new standards for cost-effective maintenance and servicing, thanks to their long service life and the possibility of re-using them. 

The continuous caster is equipped with modules from the ISC® (Intelligent Slab Casting) package, which ensure optimal plant productivity and slab quality. These modules include the hydraulically actuated resonance oscillation system, the mold with remote-adjustable narrow faces for changing the slab width during casting, as well as the Mold Monitoring System.  

The horizontal part of the strand guide system uses position-controlled CyberLink segments. Dynamic Soft Reduction® in combination with the metallurgical process model DSC® (Dynamic Solidification Control) to control secondary cooling allows the production of slabs with perfect internal quality.  

On this plant, PT. Gunung produces high-quality slabs for further processing in its own Steckel and heavy plate mills.

This works is of high strategic importance to us. 
Until now, we had to purchase slabs. By producing slabs ourselves, we do not only achieve a higher creation of value, but also ensure high quality thanks to the plants supplied by SMS group. 
Of course, all our plants are energy-efficient and easy on the environment. 
That is why we purchased them from SMS group.
