Technical Service for Ladle turrets

Preventive maintenance is the key to the productivity of today´s continuous casters

In this context, ladle turrets are critical equipment units because they constantly move the ladles from charging to the casting position.

That is why the ladle turret has to work perfectly to ensure seamless operation of the entire caster.

Ensuring operation without interruption

Productivity, quality and a long service life are the main goals of our all-round service. Performing inspections at regular intervals helps to minimize unnecessary downtimes and increases both productivity and occupational safety.
