Vertical semi-continuous casting plants for billets and slabs

Frequently changing casting schedules require top plant flexibility. That’s exactly what you get from these plants. They come with up to 6 strands and an annual output of as much as 120,000 t. You can cast lengths of between 3 and 12 meters – with slab widths reaching 1,300 mm and billet diameters of up to 450 mm. Our semi-continuous casting plants handle a wide range of copper alloys as well as all copper grades. Simply adjust the solidification conditions, especially the cooling rate, precisely to the requirements of your copper alloy.
