Salzgitter Flachstahl will revamp continuous caster No. 1
by Hans Diederichs
Salzgitter Flachstahl has commissioned SMS group to revamp continuous caster No. 1 at its Salzgitter works. The plant, which was delivered by SMS group in 1981, is to be fitted with a new machine head with mold, oscillator, and segment 0.
The revamp is aimed at upgrading the plant with a range of trendsetting features, including the use of a hydraulic resonance oscillator and the digital alignment assistant HD LASr [mold]. The scope of supply covers the engineering, the delivery of mechatronic components, the dismantling, and the installation and commissioning of the new equipment. An innovative solution will be used for mounting segment 0 in the machine head. This solution is the result of intensive and successful cooperation between Salzgitter Flachstahl and SMS group. The revamp is set to take place during a scheduled plant shutdown in October 2020.
