All strip products are manufactured at KME's three main sites on technically well-established equipment. For example, the Conti-M® works at the Hettstedt site with a unique cast-rolling technology works without interruption by transferring metal melted from cathodes into a solid state via a twin-belt casting machine (Hazelett). From there it goes directly into the hot-rolling mill and continues on to become milled, hot-rolled strip. The Conti-M® process bypasses the conventional step of hot-rolling slabs, working instead continuously from liquid to solid state, thus tying up the first part of the process chain in an innovative way.
By choosing KME pre-rolled and finished strip, you are opting for high-quality products with clean, bright-rolled or milled surfaces that not only comply with all the main standards, but in some cases go even further.
