Steel Production Faces Unique Challenges in a Volatile Market

Reliable Drive Technology for Extreme Conditions

    Voith components for the steel industry are helping customers to stay competitive.

    Steel production is changing: It is becoming more flexible, more efficient and more environmentally friendly. For the operators of steel mills, this means modifying the mills to make them more technically and economically competitive over the long term. Control and drive systems play an important role in this process. With in­nova­tive products and drive solutions, we are your partner over the entire lifetime of your system.

    For example, you will find Voith high-performance universal joint shafts in rolling mills on every continent of the earth. The universal joint shafts transmit torques up to 20,000 kNm, are precisely matched to the requirements of the drive and hit the optimal ratio between power, reliability and cost. In many cases, the universal joint shafts replace slipper or gear type spindles. In this way, they substantially reduce the consumption of lubricant and increase the overall efficiency of the drive.

    Voith control and drive systems contribute to producing steel the way your customers want it. Using our products and solutions, you avoid unplanned downtime that causes high costs. The life cycle costs of your system can be planned and remain low.
