SMS group plans to showcase innovations at Wire and Tube 2024

by David Fleschen

SMS plans to focus on sustainability, digitalization, and the power of innovation at wire and Tube, the trade fair taking place in Düsseldorf from April 15 to 19, 2024. Special emphasis will be placed here on how energy transport and hydrogen influence the way the market develops.

Thomas Massmann, Executive Vice President Long Products at SMS, underlines the importance of this trade fair for the changes now taking place in the tube and wire industry, which is increasingly relying on innovations that boost productivity and sustainability. “The inter-company dialogs on large-diameter pipe production, production quality monitoring, and hydrogen use are important topics that I would like to discuss with our customers and partners, and I look forward to a lively exchange of information and ideas,” says Thomas Massmann.

SMS is focusing on current topics such as decarbonization, digitalization, sustainability, and lifecycle partnerships, in order to redefine its role as a plant builder that goes beyond traditional boundaries.

SMS develops innovative solutions to minimize losses when transporting highly volatile hydrogen or natural gas, as there is an urgent need for dense, pore-free pipes and containers. At wire and Tube, SMS will also be offering insights into solutions ranging from sustainable rebar minimills right up to the world’s largest ERW tube welding line. The presentation of the largest ERW-welded tube of its kind is real proof of SMS’s commitment to pushing the technological boundaries of the industry. “This exhibit symbolizes SMS group’s commitment to innovation and ongoing development,” adds Thomas Massmann. The new autonomous measuring system for premium threads will also be on display at the fair. These advances emphasize SMS’s spotlight on innovation. “We are at a critical point in the steel industry where the focus on sustainable and efficient production methods has never been as important as it is today,” adds Thomas Massmann.

The “Leading Partner Talks” that SMS plans to hold at its booth are an important element of its trade fair attendance. These provide participants with direct insights into technologies, collaborative partnerships and projects from the perspective of customers and industry experts.
