Drawn steel center at Flanschenwerk Bebitz offers 30 percent higher productivity

Flanschenwerk Bebitz, Germany, has placed an order with SMS Meer, Germany, for a new drawn steel center of type BC 120. The plant has a peeling speed of up to 40 m/min and is therefore around 30 percent more productive than conventional plants. The improved economy is achieved thanks to a particularly robust design which enables very high peeling speeds.

The scope of supply includes a FP5 double-sided milling and chamfering machine, a PMS 125 peeling machine, a WRP 120 B two-roll straightening machine, the integration of a test section for surface defects, a strip grinder and the comprehensive bar handling system.

The plant peels, straightens and tests special-steel round bars of various grades. The machines process material with diameters of 25 to 120 mm and bar lengths of 3 to 6 m. The bar diameter can be reduced by up to 10 mm. Low changing times also ensure Bebitz can offer the desired flexibility. ‘’With the new plant we can offer more individually customized solutions to meet our customers’ requirements,’’ says Udo Gebel, Production Manager for bright drawn steel at Flanschenwerk Bebitz+. ‘’Wath’s more, with the SMS Meer plant we can expect to attain maximum product quality."
