Kocks “RSB 5.0” at Xiangtan’s SBQ mill #3
The Chinese special steel producer Hunan Valin Xiangtan Iron+Steel Co. Ltd. has started up its completely new SBQ mill #3.
The core piece of this new rolling mill is a 3-roll Reducing+Sizing Block [RSB] in 5.0 design supplied by Friedrich Kocks GmbH+Co KG, Germany. The “RSB 5.0” is designed for thermomechanical rolling and finishes most flexible all straight bar sizes of Ø 16.0mm to 100.0mm onto the cooling bed. Beside the RSB 5.0, the roll shop for the preparation of the 3-roll stands and 3-roller guides, as well as the supervision services are the responsibility of Kocks. It is the 2nd successful installation of a 3-roll Kocks RSB at Xiangtan after 2005.
