SMS Concast is to supply two new Convex molds that will be prepared for the use of HD moldFO. Commissioning is scheduled for 2018.
With the HD moldFO, SMS group offers a significant improvement in online signal acquisition through the use of fiber optics. With more than 200 possible measurement points on continuous casters for long products, the measurement density is significantly higher than when using thermocouples. The measurement points can be distributed over the whole height of the mold, and the positions of the measurement points can be freely selected. Only the use of the HD moldFO will make online visualization of the local strand shell thickness and of the thicknesses of the liquid and solid mold powder layers possible.
SMS Concast is also to supply Concor rollers for segment 1 and the Dynamic Cool (online and offline) Level 2 technology package for optimization of the secondary cooling zones.
