After the successful installation and operation of a KOCKS RSB® 370/5 in 2005, Xiangtan I&S also decided to install a KOCKS RSB® 5.0 of the newest generation at its new SBQ mill. The new RSB® 5.0 is designed for thermomechanical rolling and will finish most flexible all straight bar sizes of Ø 16.0 to 100.0 mm onto the cooling bed. Beside the RSB®, also the roll shop for preparation of the 3-roll stands and 3-roller guides, as well as supervision services are included in the scope of supply. The commissioning of the RSB® 5.0 is scheduled for the first quarter of 2020. KOCKS rolled® products stand for an extraordinary quality – made to consistently high standards by commissioning.
