Heinrich Geissler, a company of the GMH Group, based in Witten, Germany, has ordered a two roll straightener for bright steel from SMS Meer. The machine is 7 m high and weighs 280 tonne.
Heinrich Geissler will use the new machine to straighten round bars of solid steel with diameters up to 250 mm. The machine offers a straightening force of 8,000 kN. It will be supplied by SMS Meer together with the complete finishing equipment.
Dr Jean Frederic Castagnet Technical Director at Heinrich Geissler said that “SMS Meer as our long-standing partner has already supplied numerous peeling and straightening machines to the GMH Group. With this new bright steel straightener, we are now setting standards.”
Commissioning is scheduled for June 2013.
