Stahl Judenburg, based in Judenburg, Austria, has successfully commissioned a BC-50 bright steel center supplied by SMS Meer (www.sms-meer.com), Germany. The PM-series peeling machine produces bright steel within the 14 to 54 millimeters diameter range. Combined with a WRP straightening and polishing machine the SMS Meer plant meets strict straightness and surface quality requirements.

Stahl Judenburg uses the bright steel center to produce bars for the motor and plant engineering sectors of the automotive industry. This is the second SMS Meer plant of its kind operated by the company.

“We have found a reliable partner in SMS Meer,” says Dr. Niels Vieweg, Technical Managing Director at Stahl Judenburg. “The demands of the bright steel industry in terms of quality and performance are constantly growing. As well as the plant SMS delivers excellent service too. SMS Meer provides support with repairs and deals with spare and wear parts. This ensures both consistent quality as well as our success in the market.”
