Puyang Steel grants final acceptance of slab caster from SMS

Chinese steel producer Hebei Puyang Iron and Steel Co., Ltd. (Puyang Steel) has issued to SMS group the Final Acceptance Certificate (FAC) for the single-strand slab caster commissioned in 2015. The new caster was integrated into the existing bay, using the available crane systems.

Jointly with Puyang Steel, SMS group developed a tailor-made and fully integrated concept that fits perfectly into the existing structural situation of the works.

With the new continuous caster, Puyang Steel has expanded its range of slabs produced, above all by high-quality grades, such as peritectic microalloyed and high-strength steels, high-carbon and boron-alloy grades, premium steels and pipeline grades.

SMS group met the customer’s expectations by achieving fast commissioning and a steep run-up curve of the plant.
