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.

It is our common responsibility to be prepared for this and to set the switches for a successful future.
