Less material defects – higher quality

SMS Logistiksysteme to supply billet inspection line for Formosa Ha Tinh

From Taiwanese Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, a company of the Formosa Plastics Group, SMS Logistiksysteme, Germany,( received the order to supply a billet inspection line for the new fully integrated steelworks of Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Corporation domiciled in Vietnam.

The line is scheduled to be put on stream in October 2015.

This investment is the customer’s response to growing quality requirements in the sectors of bar steel and wire. In a fully automatic process, the line will inspect rolled billets for inside as well as outside defects which will subsequently be remedied by grinding with pinpoint precision. The fault analysis allows conclusions to be drawn also about the preceding production steps: Casting or rolling processes can be adapted and hence continuously improved. For the future, this implies a distinct reduction of material defects.


SMS Siemag AG and SMS Meer GmbH are both companies of SMS group which, under the roof of SMS Holding GmbH, consists of a group of companies internationally active in plant construction and mechanical engineering for the steel and nonferrous metals industry.
