Everything from rolling to heat treatment: SMS group know-how covers the complete plate production process. Dedicated to boosting the efficiency of final mechanical property setting during heat treatment, we developed new methods and technologies.
Take for instance our groundbreaking MultiFlex-Quench®. What makes it stand out from other quenches is not only its exceptionally high flexibility, but also its extremely wide range of cooling rates - from direct water quenching right down to gentle cooling with a multiple nozzle system. As a result, you can choose from various cooling patterns for many different steel grades. The first installation was installed at Acroni (Slovenia), a company highly specialized in plates and strips made of stainless steels, tool steels, abrasion- resistant steels, and HSLA grades.
