High-quality slabs for heavy plate

The continuous caster is designed for the production of slabs with thicknesses of 220 and 250 millimeters and widths from 800 to 2,100 millimeters. The range of grades comprises structural steels as well as pipe and heavy-plate grades.

The segments are equipped with STEC-Roll® technology. Rolls of this technology optimize the casting process and set new standards for cost-effective maintenance and servicing, thanks to their long service life and the possibility of re-using them.

SMS group supplied the complete basic and detail engineering, the mechanical and electrical core components and the supervision of erection and commissioning. The SMS group scope of supply furthermore includes the complete X-Pact® electrical and automation system including Level 2 automation and commissioning according to the tried and tested "Plug&Work" concept.
