Today, CSP® (Compact Strip Production) is the world's leading thin slab technology. Pioneered by SMS group in 1989, it has transformed the world of flat steel production. That's because CSP® has so much to offer - above all: high cost efficiency, a broad product spectrum, and excellent strip quality.
Full variety of carbon grades such as structural steel, silicon steel, pipe grades, multiphase steel
800 - 2,150 mm
0.8 - 25.4 mm
1- strand up to 1.6 million tpy
2-strand up to 3.2 million tpy
Compact in design, CSP® produces high-quality hot strip in a single manufacturing line that combines casting, heating, and rolling. Our proven CSP® caster with its patented funnel-shaped mold casts thin slabs in thicknesses ranging from 50 to 90 mm. Next, the slabs go into the CSP® furnace for temperature equalization. Straight after that, the CSP® mill rolls them to final strip thickness.
If you want to grow with the market, CSP® is the perfect solution for you. Starting with a single-strand CSP® plant, you can cost-effectively produce around 1.5 million tons per year. Later, simply add a second casting strand to double your capacity to more than 3 million tons per year.
Hydrodynamic roll-neck bearings from SMS group are highly advanced and elementary components of modern rolling mill technology. That's because they support the load-bearing backup rolls. Even under extremely tough operating conditions, they ensure long roll service life and minimal maintenance outlay. This is how roll-neck bearings contribute substantially to meeting the high requirements for optimal final strip geometry.

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
High-strength materials require greater rolling torques and forces. The new Sieflex® HT gear-type self-aligning spindle is a key to meeting this demand.
Innovative circuling oil lubrication
- Low oil consumption
- Longer service life due to clean, cool lubricating oil
- Reduction of downtimes by more than 50 %
- Higher drive and rolling torques at the same work roll diameter
- Full torque capacity up to a deflection angle of 2.5°
- Reduced maintenance
The Genius Condition Monitoring includes a modularly designed, permanent online monitoring system. It controls and records the current condition of wear-prone plant components and notifies when situations become critical.
