Seamless rolled die rings

Schmiedewerke Gröditz GmbH is the leading European manufacturer of seamlessly rolled rings used as round and flat dies in pellet mills. This Saxony-based company has meanwhile attained an approximately 30 percent share of the global die ring blank market.

Chinese subsidiaries of European plant and die manufacturers - as well as locally based Asian producers - open up excellent sales prospects. And this product segment, furthermore, is also becoming increasingly important in many other regions of the world.

Leading edge service

Schmiedewerke Gröditz GmbH is already working on warehousing concepts for optimal management of the logistics-related challenges which inevitably accompany international deliveries. Another area of focus is the further development of the existing range of materials to reduce wear and tear of the dies. Production processes, furthermore, are also being made more efficient. The close-contour production of die ring blanks is an additional feature which reinforces Schmiedewerke Gröditz's market position. Our explicit medium term aim is to increase our share of the global market to 50 percent.

Die rings for pellet mills

Pellet product plays as important a role for the animal feed industry as it does for energy production, for example as biomass/wood pellets in thermal power stations. As a specialist for seamlessly rolled die ring blanks, Schmiedewerke Gröditz GmbH was represented at the world's leading trade show in this sector - VICTAM International 2019 in Cologne. Such an event represents a big opportunity to reinforce and intensify market relations in the world. We took the chance.
