Vertical casting lines

High flexibility and economic efficiency

Our vertical continuous and semi-continuous casting plants have become synonymous with maximum efficiency and operational safety. They are ideal for manufacturing slabs and extrusion billets. Meanwhile, our optimized mold technology has turned into a byword for top quality combined with high productivity. Depending on the casting format, you can achieve outputs of up to 150,000 tpy.
