Chinese steelmaker Hebei Puyang Iron and Steel has issued a Final Acceptance Certificate to the German SMS Group for the supply of a single-strand slab caster.

The SMS slab caster is described by SMS a ‘tailor-made and fully integrated concept that perfectly fits into the existing structural situation of the works.”

The addition of the new equipment means that Puyang has expanded its range of slabs and now includes high quality grades – such as preitectic micro-alloyed and high-strength steels, high carbon and boron-alloy grades, premium steels and pipeline grades.
