Just four weeks after the first bar rolled from the new block, the Chinese producer of SBQ products and Friedrich Kocks GmbH+ Co KG signed the official documents. Due to the pandemic and current world situation, the project was demanding, but ultimately successful.

The modernized SBQ mill of the steel producer in the Fujian province on the southeastern coast of China has now gone into regular operation. The trust in Kocks as a supplier was confirmed by an excellent project, which was delivered in time and successfully executed no matter the pandemic challenges.

The new Kocks Reducing+Sizing Block works highly reliable with best tolerances and achieves great overall results of the rolled products. The “RSB 370++/4” is located as finishing unit after 21 stands in H/V rolling mill arrangement. Sanming produces bar in coil within a dimension of Ø 16mm to 48mm and straight bars within a dimension of Ø 20mm to 90mm in an 800.000t/a mill line.
