Casting Technology: Focus - Casting Platform

Classroom Training


This one-day training provides a widely comprehensive course in process-technological backgrounds of continuous casting of flat products (slabs), from the ladle through the tundish, and submerged entry shroud/nozzle; up to the commencement of solidification in the mold. The entire technological process - as well as the relevant process parameters and characteristics related to their interaction, influences and effects - will be explained.

Particular attention is paid to the influence of process parameters on machine components at the casting platform and associated automation. Basic information regarding steel chemistry, steel metallurgy, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics are included as useful, applicable and required knowledge for a better understanding of the technological core processes.
