Baosteel elects GEORG for the world’s most modern CRM roll shop

Investment into the Future

12 months ago Baowu Steel Group Corp. Ltd. (former Baosteel) and Shanghai Court Roll Surface Treatment Co., Ltd. entrusted the high-tech machine builder GEORG with the engineering and realization of five roll grinding machines of the GEORG ultragrind type.  Background was the planned plant expansion of the Zhanjiang site in Guangdong province with the target to build the world’s most modern CRM roll shop.

Technically and economically superior

For Baowu Steel and Shanghai Court the decisive criteria for placing the future oriented order with GEORG was the focus on application of latest state-of-the-art technologies, e.g. the GEORG smart control. Based on the world’s most advanced machine control system SINUMERIC ONE by Siemens we have integrated the digital twin into our roll grinding machines already. The interaction between the virtual and the real machine offers our customers best conditions for enormous production increases when applying our grinding machines.  As a result GEORG could make a great step ahead of its competition in regards to automation, digitalization, verification and economy wise.

Ready to act in spite of Covid-19 pandemic

GEORG is proud that in spite of all adverse circumstances during the worldwide pandemic of Covid-19 all dates and dead-lines could be kept. The originally planned personal presence of the customer during pre-acceptance at our Kreuztal works was not possible due to travel restrictions. However, this was not an obstacle for GEORG to carry out the tests together with the customer in a digital way. All main machine functions were demonstrated and verified live. 

During this event all responsible project team members at Zhanjiang and Shanghai could virtually convince themselves about the GEORG quality.  At present all five machines are on their way to the customer at Zhanjiang.

Invest now to be ready for the recovery

Covid-19 pandemic has hit many companies severely and has caused many restrictions and uncertainties. Anyhow the world goes on turning and we all have to take care respectfully of the health of our employees but also of the success or fail of our companies. At present nobody can tell when the right vaccine against Covid-19 will be available. However, one thing is for sure: after a long time of infringement of investments there will be a booming upswing ahead of us. It is our common responsibility to be prepared for this and to set the switches for a successful future.
With our analogous and digital tools we have been continuously able to consult and assist our customers in almost every aspect. We will be glad to support also you in your planning of possible investments and ideas with all our competence but also with flexibility and experience.
Just contact us. We are by your side.

"The GEORG ultrablock was very beneficial to us", says Herbert Geier from AMAG

One of our first roll grinding machines with our new GEORG ultrablock machine bed design, the GEORG ultragrind SG 2 has now been commissioned at AMAG in Ranshofen (Austria).

Herbert Geier, Project Manager at AMAG: "The GEORG ultrablock concept was very beneficial to us, as the cost of the foundation is significantly lower than for other machines. Since no modifications whatsoever were required to the standard machine, we also benefited from the short delivery time".

Delivery of the first five machines with the GEORG smartcontrol

We are now pleased to be able to deliver the GEORG smartcontrol to a customer for the first time.

The control is based on the #SINUMERIK_ONE, and as a digital native control, is ideally equipped for the future.

With the #digitaltwin of our machine, we were able to carry out some tests beforehand. This helps us to shorten the commissioning time.

Our confidence in the new technology is so high that we will deliver not just one but five machines.
