Lianxin Steel and Shandong Laigang Yongfeng order TMbaR mill from SMS group

For decades, SMS group (www.sms-group.com) has been a pioneer in and promoter of thermomechanical rolling. Now, two Chinese companies, Lianxin Steel and Shandong Laigang Yongfeng Steel, have decided to employ TMbaR, the process developed by SMS group for thermomechanical rolling of rebar.

With SMS group’s TMbaR process, it is possible to produce fine-grained final products while reducing the content of expensive alloys in the input stock.

Thermomechanical rolling is a forming process in which final reduction is carried out within a defined temperature range leading to specific properties of the rolled stock. Thus, sufficient capacity for cooling and equalization has to be provided for in the plant design. The lower rolling temperatures (750 to 820 degrees Celsius) require higher rolling forces and consequently wire rod blocks capable of sustaining very high loads. Under these rolling conditions, grain sizes that in conventional rolling would typically range between ASTM 8 and 10 can be improved to ASTM 12 with thermomechanical rolling.

Key components of the SMS group TMbaR technology are a loop line with water boxes for controlled cooling and equalizing and a MEERdrive® finishing block. Besides its rigid design, which allows rolling forces so far unattained in the market, the MEERdrive® block is equipped with a single drive which provides the flexibility required to optimally control recrystallization after rolling.

Two companies have now decided in favor of the TMbaR technology: Lianxin Steel and Shandong Laigang Yongfeng.

Lianxin Steel has ordered a TMbaR mill for its Dafeng site. The plant will be designed for an annual production of 1,000,000 tons of rebar with diameters ranging between 8 and 40 millimeters at a maximum rolling speed of 45 meters per second. SMS group will supply all rolling mill stands for the roughing, intermediate and finishing mills, including two six-stand MEERdrive® finishing blocks, shears, water boxes as well as the double HSD® system. Additionally, the complete package of electrical and automation systems as well as supervision of erection and commissioning are in the scope of supply. The plant is scheduled to be started up by the end of 2018.

The TMbaR mill for Shandong Laigang Yongfeng´s Dezhou site is part of a capacity conversion program using the EAF-based production route to replace the existing facilities. The new plant will be designed for an annual production of 1,000,000 tons of rebar in diameters ranging between 8 and 32 millimeters. This includes straight bars with diameters between 8 and 25 millimeters to be rolled at a maximum speed of 45 meters per second and bar-in-coil in diameters ranging from 8 to 32 millimeters to be rolled at a maximum speed of 35 meters per second. Yongfeng is going to install two five-strand continuous casting machines supplied by SMS Concast as well as a new high-speed rolling area, including two six-stand MEERdrive® finishing blocks, cooling and equalizing lines, a high-speed outlet consisting of a two-strand HSD® (High-Speed Delivery) system with dividing shears and pinch roll unit as well as a VCC® (Vertical Compact Coiler) system for coils weighing up to five tons. Additionally, the electrical and automation systems for the three mechanical packages and supervision of erection and commissioning will be supplied. The plant is scheduled to start production in 2019.

Both companies put their trust in the long-standing experience of SMS group and its one-step-ahead TMbaR technology, which will allow Lianxin Steel and Shandong Laigang Yongfeng to respond better and faster to market demands, achieve improved material properties and save on alloys and operating costs.

23rd International Congress for Battery Recycling ICBR 2018

The holiday season is coming up and it is now time to make preparations for the months ahead. We hope you have already blocked the time slot from September 26 to 28 in your agenda. At the time battery recycling specialists from all around the world will be getting together for this year’s International Congress Battery Recycling ICBR 2018 in Berlin, Germany.

Don’t miss this opportunity to exchange news, views and ideas with experts from all areas of the battery recycling sector. Again, this year we have put together an interesting and highly diverse program for our visitors. We are particularly looking forward to our keynote speakers, who will open the congress on September 26. This year we will be welcoming

• Prof. Kerstin Kuchta (Hamburg University of Technology, Germany),
• Didier Marginèdes (Blue Solutions, France),
• Gudula Schwan (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Germany)

Prof. Kerstin Kuchta will be giving us a summary of the battery market and the circular economy. Before the conference we had an opportunity to talk to Prof. Kerstin Kuchta. She gave us a number of interesting insights, which you can read about in the following interview:

Professor Kuchta, the EU circular economy package was adopted just a few weeks ago. Which impulses do you expect it will provide in the field of battery recycling?
The EU circular economy package has triggered a great deal of debate throughout Europe. The main criticism levelled at the package in Germany is that it is not ambitious or specific enough to bring about the intended transformation of the economy. Impulses have undoubtedly been provided towards the fundamental acknowledgement that even complex products do not become waste after the use phase, but are resources that need to be either made available for reuse or recycled for use in the production sector. As a result, product design and the provision and accessibility of secondary raw materials are also becoming more important for batteries.

Changes in the transportation sector, in energy supply and the trend towards a generally more mobile lifestyle are placing growing emphasis on the production and further development of batteries and thus to the supply of raw materials.

In the view of the EU, the task of the circular economy is to supply industry with raw materials. Which role can battery recycling play in achieving this aim?
Raw materials for making batteries such as lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese are scarce or critical raw materials and demand for them cannot be met by mines in Europe. Primary extraction largely takes place in a few regions worldwide and in politically unstable situations. The recycling of batteries helps to reduce supply risks. At the same time, recycling minimises
energy intensity in the production chain. The recycling of metals requires up to 80 per cent less energy compared to primary production, thus protecting both the environment and the climate.

Some time ago, Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke out in favour of Europe setting up its own battery cell production capacities with the aim of reducing dependency on imports from Asia. Is that a good idea?
Battery and storage systems support key technologies, strengthening Europe as a production location through sufficient, efficient and innovative availability. The recycling and reuse of batteries and the materials from which they are made as a means of supplying raw materials will impact production technologies and promote the establishing of innovative manufacturing within Europe.

To which extent could battery recyclers benefit from battery manufacturing in Europe?
The creation of a largely closed added value in circular systems not only promotes the mutual appreciation of all stakeholders, but also innovations in the system as a whole. That includes recycling, reuse, processing and, not least, product design. Geographical proximity generally promotes mutual understanding, greater interest and the development of business models. Legal or economic accompanying measures introduced to promote the reuse of materials and the exclusion of hazardous materials, for example, can be implemented in Europe.

Your keynote speech at the ICBR 2018 is titled "Batteries and a Circular Economy". Which points will your speech mainly focus on?
Unlike plastics, organic wastes or construction waste, batteries have a comparatively low mass flow. However, in terms of the quality and value of their components, their complexity and their growing importance, they constitute a significant material flow in a circular economy. The focal points of my speech, i.e. the opportunities and limitations of the circular economy, product design and quality as well as reuse, recycling and cascade utilisation are presented and discussed for both battery materials and their systems.

Do not miss this opportunity to exchange news, views and ideas with experts from all areas of the battery recycling sector. We look forward to welcoming you at this year’s industry meeting! For all the details on the program and how to register, go to: https://www.icm.ch/icbr-2018

Jens Schroth and Michele Mastagni are granted procuration

Kögel has granted procuration to Sales Manager Jens Schroth, responsible for customers in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland), and Michele Mastagni, Sales Manager at Kögel Italia S.R.L. Kögel customers in Germany and Italy will benefit from a considerable acceleration of decision making and processing in daily business transactions.

"By granting procuration, we are underpinning the high professional competence and management qualities of these two sales managers in Europe. In today’s world, it is becoming increasingly important to make quick decisions on site during the sales process. By doing this, we officially give Jens Schroth in the DACH region and Michele Mastagni in Italy these competencies, and are pleased that, as authorized signatories, they now officially represent Kögel externally," said Petra Adrianowytsch, Managing Director of Corporate Development, Human Resources, Marketing/Communication and IT at Kögel concerning this strategic step. "This is a clear expression of our trust in them."

Michele Mastagni has been working at Kögel Italia, based in Cremona, Italy, as Sales Manager for two years. Massimo Dodoni, Managing Director of Sales in Eastern Europe and Italy as well as After Market at Kögel, is pleased that Mastagni’s new responsibilities will provide customers with even more effective and efficient support. The computer and information scientist can look back on more than fifteen years of experience in the commercial vehicle industry. Before joining Kögel, Mastagni worked as a country manager for internationally renowned trailer manufacturers. As a result, Mastagni, aged 47, has acquired comprehensive industry and product knowledge in the commercial vehicle market and knows all the important major customers. Over the last two years, he has turned Italy into one of Kögel’s most important and largest markets.

Josef Warmeling, Managing Director of Sales in Western Europe, Used Vehicles, Value Added Services, Associations and OEMs at Kögel, pursues a clear goal with the appointment of Schroth as authorized signatory – to implement decisions more quickly for the benefit of the customer. Jens Schroth took over the management of sales in the DACH area a year ago. After more than 13 years, the new Sales Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland moved from the European market leader for semi-trailers to Kögel. Since then, Schroth, in his new function at Kögel, has been responsible for expanding the market position in the DACH core market, heading the Kögel regional sales managers and establishing strategic key customers. The 43-year-old industrial business administrator has had many years of sales experience in the trailer and commercial vehicle sector.

The growth trends of production and sales of the German automotive industry in figures – new Quest report

The new Quest Report in the Quest Trend Magazine builds on the analysis of production and sales of the automotive industry in Germany since 2008. The new report covers the current trend in the automotive industry. This trend is a growth trend that began at the beginning of 2014 and is shaping both automobile production in Germany and its sales development. The trend is methodically determined as a moving one-year average of monthly production and sales figures – illustrated in the diagram as a dashed line.

The growth trend in car production from the beginning of 2014 to May 2018 is 2.2% per year. This slight growth trend of 2.2% per year is almost at the same level as the slight growth in global automobile production of 2.6% per year from 2007 to 2017. Without automobile production in China, world automobile production would have stagnated at 0.5% per year since 2007. However, growth in automobile production in China so far in 2018 has been lower than in 2017.

From the beginning of 2014 to May 2018, the German automotive industry’s sales trend was at 4.0% per year, almost twice as high as automobile production.

The new Quest report to production and sales of the German automobile industry is available on http://www.quest-trendmagazine.com/en/automobile-industry/germany/german-automobile-production.html

This report is a module of the comprehensive trend analysis of the worldwide automotive industry in the Quest Trend Magazine. The trend analyses include the internationalization of production sites, the world regions of car production, the share of car production in China at world car production, the market shares of the world market leaders and the market leaders in China. These trend analyses in the Quest Trend Magazine make planning and market development for one of the most important sales markets in automation technology easier for the suppliers of automation technology. An overview of the trend analyses can be found on http://www.quest-trendmagazine.com/en/automobile-industry.html
