AIC, together with Kocks and Morgardshammar, has been awarded to revamp the SeAH plant in Changwon (South Korea)

SEAH CHANGWON INTEGRATED SPECIAL STEEL CORP. contracted FRIEDRICH KOCKS GmbH & Co KG, Morgårdshammar AB and AIC for a modernization project at its steel plant in Changwon, continuing decades of successful partnership with the Korean special steel producer.

The SeAH group acquired SEAH CHANGWON INTEGRATED SPECIAL STEEL CORP. (formerly known as POSCO Specialty Steel and Sammy Steel) in March 2015. 
The company became Korea’s only domestic producer of stainless steel rods and wires made from high-quality special steel materials. With an annual production capacity reaching 1.2 million tons of steel making and 1.0 million tons of steel products, SeAH CSS belongs to the global top ten of special steel manufacturers.
The existing KOCKS blocks – Precison Sizing Block (PSB) and 370/10 Pre-finishing Block will be replaced by two 2-high HV stands, three Looper, a Crob & Cobble Shear and a 370++ RSB SCS®.
The RSB SCS® is the latest milestone in reducing and sizing technology for SBQ products and offers SeAH CSS enhanced bar and wire quality, improved productivity, mill availability and economy as well as a simplified, safe and environmentally friendly operation.
