BSW, the mini-mill of the Badische group, achieved new records for productivity in May 2016.
The new daily record was set on 13th of May with an output of 8.352 tons good billets (79 heats) with both production lines at an average tap-to-tap time of 36,5 minutes and power-off time of 8 minutes. Beside this outstanding productivity, BSW attaches great importance to efficiency, having reached a specific electrical energy consumption of 338 kWh/t.
"The record of one given day makes the routine of the day after." / "Real success means highest
efficiency over a long period."
As a proof of these principles, in May the average daily production per month reached also a new record level of 7.914 tons good billets (75 heats per day; tap-to-tap time 38,5 min; power-off time 9,4 min; electrical energy consumption 343 kWh/t)
These records are the result of consistent application of the "Badische Philosophy": Educated and well-trained people care for reliable equipment, and high productivity leading to low cost production.
