POSCO Awards Pomini as Quality Supplier
The steel-making company headquartered in Pohang, South Korea, acknowledges Pomini’s quality and reliability for the project carried out in Gwangyang Steelworks.
In September, POSCO held an official ceremony to celebrate an important milestone: its steel production facility in Gwangyang, South Jeolla Province, reached one million ton per year production capacity for GIGA steel, an ultrahigh-strength steel product used in the automotive industry to build stronger, safer and lighter vehicles for sustainable mobility.
In this framework, Pomini Tenova, worldwide leader in the production of roll grinders, received a special award as quality supplier by the South Korean steel producer. In 2019, Pomini was contracted to supply three roll grinding machines MW 479 for cold rolling cluster mill. The machines have been also equipped with Inspektor system using both Eddy Current e Creeping Wave technologies.
“We are honored for this recognition and for the opportunity to have collaborated with such an important player of the Asian market for almost thirty years: we count nearly forty references worldwide”, affirmed Paolo Gaboardi, Tenova Executive Vice President. “One out of ten cars in the globe is made with POSCO’s steel, and Pomini’s technologies have contributed to this great success”.
