Drive Systems

More torque? Less bearing damage? Higher availability?

You can have all of this with the drive systems and technical service expertise from SMS group!

If you want to concentrate on your products only, you need a reliable, smooth-running drive train. Leave it to the drive system specialists of SMS group's technical service to ensure everything between your motors or converters and work rolls, converter vessels and other operating machinery is working to your full satisfaction. We will provide you with performance-boosting spare parts, ready-to-install wheel sets, as well as entire gear units and gear spindles. Our condition monitoring system (Genius CM), in combination with regular inspections, will enable you to get the most out of your drive train's performance and service life as well as prevent unscheduled shutdowns.

If your plant is more than 10 years old, for example, we can offer you a torque increase of up to 40% with no major foundation work required and shutdown times kept as short as possible.

Up-to-date process know-how and technical innovations are incorporated into our spare parts and mondernization projects as a matter of course and on a regular basis, and ensure your plant and machinery remain state-of-the-art.
