Primetals Technologies has pioneered numerous future-oriented developments and innovations in the field of continuous casting to support producers to remain competitive. Thanks to an integrated engineering approach that covers metallurgy, mechanics, fluids as well as electrics and automation, the plants supplied are characterized by their reliability to meet the defined performance targets with regard to productivity, flexibility and product quality. Extensive prior workshop testing of equipment and systems, the installation of modular technological and mechatronic packages, as well as the application of Connect & Cast® solutions reduce project times to a minimum for both new plants and upgrades. This means short shut-down times during revamping and fast production ramp-up following plant start-ups. Producers benefit from a short return-on-investment and profitable, long-term casting operations.
