Rings and wheels for the automotive industry

Tradition since 1872

Rolling rings and wheels requires special technical and technological competence. The roots of the companies in the SMS Meer Group go all the way back to 1872. That is plenty of time to build up above average competence and corresponding know-how. Today, the group is amongst the leading plant construction firms worldwide. In the areas of steel, copper and the aluminium industry, the name SMS Meer is a well-known quantity. SMS offers the full programme: From the first layout to the complete ring and wheel rolling plant, comprehensive know-how is provided in every respect. In the implementation of individual projects, hydraulic technology from Central Hesse is in great demand. WATZ Hydraulik designs and produces complete hydraulic assemblies with large tank volumes for SMS. A WATZ power package was delivered recently – a hydraulic power station consisting of assemblies with tank volumes of 400, 800, 160 and 630 litres respectively. The station was installed by SMS at one of the world’s largest automotive suppliers.

The end customer, a component manufacturer of diesel and petrol injection pumps as well as of transmissions and engines, will use the assemblies to ensure the supply of presses as well as ram and table ejectors.
