High-quality steel for the automotive and mechanical industry engineering industries
Together with SMS group, Bangkok Iron and Steel Works (BISW), Thailand, successfully commissioned a new meltshop for the production of high-quality steel grades. Within the city of Bangkok, SMS group supplied a 60-tons ladle furnace, a 60-tons vacuum degasser, a 3(4)-strand continuous billet caster for billets 150 millimeters and 130 millimeters square as well as a fume treatment plant. The new steelworks with the equipment from SMS group assure BISW the production of high-quality steel, attaining roughly 400,000 tons per year.
“With SMS group technology we are now able to produce exactly the products our customers need, whilst staying at a competitive cost level and in line with the latest environmental directives,” says Dr. Nantawatchai, General Manager at BISW.
The new equipment allows BISW to cover the steel production ranging from low to high carbon grades and helps BISW to penetrate the domain of special steels and offer products for particular applications in the automotive and mechanical engineering industries.
The SMS group is a group of companies internationally active in plant construction and mechanical engineering for the steel and nonferrous metals industry. Its 14,000 employees generate sales of over EUR 3.3 bn.
