Designs for hot and cold rolled strip

Special applications and extended elongation

Yet SPMs are even more versatile. They are also ideal for use in pickling and cut-to-length lines or systems for extended strip elongation. Whatever your requirements, you can rely on optimal SPM design from SMS.
SPM in pickling lines:
Implemented in pickling lines, SPMs provide the desired strip texturing for further processing.

SPM in cut-to-length lines: In cut-to-length lines, SPMs in combination with levelers customize sheets for laser cutting. Our SPMs are available for strips measuring more than 2 meters in width.

SPM for extended strip elongation: Conventionally, a strip elongation of 3% is standard. However, today there is an increasing demand for additional elongation, not only for silicon or ferritic grades, but also for carbon steels. Recent references back up this trend.
