Plant types

There is almost no end to the uses of high-grade steel strip in today's world. They include everything from aircraft to beverage cans. That explains why we design our tandem cold mills, reversing mills, skin-pass mills or multi-roll mills to be just as versatile.

What's important to you are not only high flexibility and product quality, but also sustained, cost-effective operation of your plants. Opting for our efficient plant designs means you can rely on achieving the precise strip reduction and high surface qualities you want.

Are you ready for an annual production of 100,000 to 500,000 tons? Then our single-stand reversing mill (RCM) is ideal for you because it offers you a very broad product spectrum. It's also the best solution for rolling silicon steels and special steel grades.

Skin-pass mills (SPM) from SMS group achieve the precise mechanical and geometrical properties you need for your applications. It’s a process that serves to attain the correct yield points and the desired surface characteristics such as roughness and flatness.

For cold rolling of stainless steel, 20-high mills are our most common solution. Depending on the application, 20-high mills come in different sizes and in two versions: the closed, robust MonoBlock or the more flexible SplitBlock type.

SMS group developed the CVC® plus 18-HS mill design so you can produce high-strength and stainless steel grades more efficiently. Specifically, in a five-stand tandem cold mill (TCM) in 18-HS design, reductions of up to 70% are possible.
