SMS Siemag to Offer EPS Lines
Through an agreement with The Material Works, Ltd., Red Bud, Ill., global equipment supplier SMS Siemag AG will offer TMW’s Eco Pickled Surface technology for descaling carbon and stainless coiled strip steel. TMW or one of its designated manufacturers of EPS cells will supply completed cells and associated technical and support services to SMS for integration into SMS strip pickling lines anywhere in the world.
"SMS Siemag is one of the most respected names among suppliers to steel producers. We are very pleased that they have chosen to include EPS in their portfolio of advanced technologies," says TMW President Kevin Voges.
SMS Siemag strives to make its installations more environmentally friendly by using less energy and producing less waste. Many of these solutions are implemented as upgrades or retrofits to existing production lines. "We are making a strong commitment to reducing the environmental impact of pickling with EPS, an opportunity that our customers will want to consider," says Michael Haentjes, SMS Siemag general manager of Strip Processing Lines.
