Continuous casting, also called strand casting, is the process whereby molten metal is solidified into a “semi-finished” billet, bloom, or slab for subsequent rolling in the finishing mills. Continuous casting is an energy-saving technique to cast the molten steel to a section shape or a certain size billet continuously and continuous casting machine is the equipment to complete this process.
Liquid steel is usually cast in continuous casting machines in the shape of billets, blooms, or slabs. In some plants, it is also being cast in continuous casting machines in the shape of thin slabs or dog bone sections. These shapes are processed by hot rolling by passing them through plain or grooved cylindrical rotating rolls to produce plates, sheets, rods, structural sections, and tubes etc.
Optimization of starting and ending of the sequences
Optimization of consumption of copper molds
Reduction of scrap billets in order to reach max 1% on the final product
Optimization of the quality of the final product (focus on internal cracks and geometry)
Reduction of break outs
We are focused on sustainable business that delivers the best possible project results.
