The hot billets are processed to the finished products steel bars and steel wire in the rolling mill at high production speeds of up to 360 km/h. And yet another figure clearly shows the efficiency of the rolling mill: The total length of the annual wire production is close to 3,5 million kilometers and would encircle the globe 85 times. If someone had the idea to unroll a coil, he would have to walk nine kilometers. During bar production up to four bars are produced "magically" at the same time from one billet. In order to guarantee a trouble-free production and the high quality an exact adjustment of the aggregates is required which is guaranteed by a minute setting of the working processes. Particular emphasis is put on ecological (2/3 of the required heating energy are saved) and occupational safety aspects. This can only be achieved with a well trained staff.
