Timken Bearings Used in US/Russian Steel Plant

The Timken Company announced today that its bearing assemblies were used as components in the major production systems supplied by SMS Demag AG for the new SeverCorr steel plant near Columbus, Miss.

SeverCorr, a joint venture between Russian and U.S. steelmakers, ranks among the world's most modern producers. Initially, SeverCorr will produce 1.5 million tons annually of high-quality flat-rolled steel for use in the automotive, construction, agricultural and appliance industries. In April, the company announced plans for a second production line to more than double the mill's capacity.

SMS Demag provided melt equipment, hot and cold rolling mills, galvanizing and pickle lines and a temper mill for the new plant. The Timken(R) bearing assemblies are installed in gear units, roller tables and continuous casting equipment, as well as in the roll necks of the hot and cold rolling mills.

"Timken experts customized the bearing assemblies to maximize mill performance and product quality," said Michael J. Connors, Timken president - process industries. "It's the combination of global product technology with local service that makes the difference to customers like SMS Demag."
