SMS group strengthens its position as service provider in Japan

Düsseldorf, (PresseBox) - Japan Engineering Network, Co.(JEN) and SMS group K.K., based in Tokyo, Japan, have signed a business partnership agreement on repair services for continuous casting molds.

This cooperation aims to strengthen SMS group’s maintenance and repair service presence for continuous casting plants in Japan.

The positions of the measurement points can be freely chosen so as to allow more precise monitoring of the processes in the mold.

UniGuardTM coating: UniGuardTM coating has already been successfully in use in a various continuous casters around the world. As this coating provides much higher heat transfer efficiency and a lifetime almost twice as long as a conventional nickel/cobalt coating, these continuous casters benefit from this innovative coating in particular through improved product quality, higher productivity and a better cost situation.
