Today's global market demands ever higher-quality products made of steel. Meeting these standards takes innovative, efficient technologies as early as the liquid phase of the raw materials. This is where the foundations are laid for the performance of the final products.

Due to our experience in metallurgy, SMS group is a world leader when it comes to plants and machinery for manufacturing high-end materials. We team up with you to develop model solutions not only for machines, but also for controls and machine maintenance strategies - always with top green credentials.

SMS group and its predecessor companies have been using their know-how for highly productive and modern converter steelplants for carbon steel worldwide. The portfolio includes complex BOF steelplants as well as new paths in the metallurgical process such as the Primary Energy Melter (PEM) and CONPRO.

The secondary metallurgical post-treatment of the melt in the ladle furnace or under vacuum is employed to attain the desired level of quality and the right alloy. Our product portfolio includes vacuum systems (RH and RH-TOP plants, tank degassers of type VD, VOD, and VD-OB) as well as different types of ladle furnaces.

It's the job of tertiary metallurgical plants to create unique technological properties in ultra-pure steels, super alloys, cast alloys, and non-ferrous metals. Our Vacuum Induction Melting-Technology (VIM) applies a powerful process  to melt down selected scrap and refine the resulting liquid steel. The process involves casting ingots under vacuum, which further improves final-product quality.
