The Chinese producer of special bar quality products, Fujian Sangang Minguang Group Co., Ltd. (Sanming) has placed an order with Friedrich KOCKS GmbH & Co. KG for another Reducing & Sizing block. The RSB® 500++/4 in StarDrive design will be part of the company’s new rolling mill complex in Fujian province and will be used to produce high-quality steel products for various industries.
The government-owned enterprise was founded in 1958. It is part of the Sangang group with over 17,000 employees and one of the most important steel producers in the Fujian province on the southeastern coast of China. Sanming is dedicated to providing its customers with the highest quality steel products and in this course chose to build a new medium bar rolling mill featuring state-of-the-art equipment and highly reliable and automated processes.
The green field project through a Chinese EPC contractor comprises the integration of the RSB® 500++/4 as finishing block.
