SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH at the wire 2016 trade fair

Shaping the future with steel innovations

"We are the benchmark for special steel solutions" – at the wire 2016 trade fair (booth A22, hall 17), the globally leading SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Group will present its range of cutting-edge special steel products and services. From ultra-fine wire with a 13 micrometer diameter to forged pieces weighing more than 54 tons – the exhibiting subsidiaries Deutsche Edelstahlwerke, Finkl Steel, Sprint Metal, Swiss Steel, Steeltec, Ugitech and SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH International cover the world’s widest range of steel grades, dimensions and services in the special long steel sector.

At wire 2016, the international steel manufacturer SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH will showcase the theme of innovation. As a reliable partner in the development of high-tech special steel that meets the requirements for challenging technical applications, the Group enables its customers to maintain and further enhance their competitiveness. For this reason, the solution provider continually invests in its production technologies, in the development of materials and in the global expansion of its sales & services network. At the trade fair, Deutsche Edelstahlwerke will inform visitors about its new production line consisting of a drawing line, two grinding machines and a crack testing system. Modern technologies are used, for example, to manufacture high-performance valve steel for lightweight automotive construction and increase the level of flexibility and efficiency in production. Customers benefit from faster response times. A further highlight is the technological bright steel innovation from Steeltec: The dynamic load-bearing capacity of the steel is increased by ten percent by setting up an ultrafine granular structure – the components can be designed to have a more compact construction or achieve greater performance in the application. Ugitech, a global market leader in terms of its spectrum of machine-enhanced UGIMA® stainless steels, will present its latest product developments from the UGIMA® range, including highly corrosion-resistant duplex steel for the oil and gas industry, for example.

By combining technical competence in terms of materials, technological resources and SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH International, the sales and services network operating in over 30 countries, SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH offers customers around the world high-quality consultation services and high product quality as well as services to suit specific requirements, all from a single source.
