High-quality grades

With the new continuous caster supplied by SMS group, Puyang Steel has expanded its range of slabs produced, above all by high-quality grades, such as peritectic microalloyed and high-strength steels, high-carbon and boron-alloy grades, premium steels and pipeline grades.

Thanks to good cooperation, SMS group was able to meet the high expectations of Puyang Steel and realize a fast commissioning and steep run-up curve of the plant. Together with the customer and based on profound experience and knowledge, SMS group developed a tailor-made and fully integrated concept that fits perfectly into the existing structural situation of the works. The new caster was integrated into the existing bay, using the available crane systems.

The cooperation with SMS was very positive. The technical know-how impressed us. This was a very good basis for implementing our wishes and demands. This was done in a highly flexible and above all economical way.
