Casting Technology: Focus - Run Out Area

Classroom Training


This one-day course provides an insight into the process-technological aspects of the continuous casting of flat products (slabs), focusing mainly on the cooling of both flat products and equipment and also on lubrication, hydraulic systems, and systems control.

The course also focuses on the influence of process parameters on strand guide segments, horizontal guide, slab strands, and associated automation systems.

Critical aspects of the temperature-dependent strand mechanics and influencing factors regarding the quality of the slab, as well as machine protection and associated engineering, are explained.

Basic information regarding steel chemistry, steel metallurgy, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics are explained insofar as these are useful, applicable, and required for a better understanding of the technological core processes.
