A new potential upgrade to the market is URD® rolling and squeeze stands for high-precision manufacturing.  Compared to conventional stands, this design comes with considerable advantages. The stands are extremely rigid and dimensionally stable thanks to closed plates, allowing the rolling forces to be absorbed both vertically and horizontally.  Additionally, there is no need to readjust the roll setting positions. The system guarantees excellent product quality.  This and other similar technical advancements can be implemented by SMS group.
