  • Calculation of the optimum tilting angle
  • Use of bath level measurement
  • Optional use of converter profile measurement
  • Different operating modes, adapted to the signals available


  • Reduced slag carryover
  • Shorter tapping time and thus higher productivity
  • Improved yield
  • Increased reproducibility
  • Improved working environment & safety
  • Operation with minimum crew
