Continuous casting Machine
Continuous Casting has evolved from a batch process into a sophisticated continuous process. This transformation has occurred through understanding principles of mechanical design, heat-transfer, steel metallurgical properties and stress-strain relationships, to produce a product with excellent shape and quality. In recent years, the process has been optimized through careful integration of electro-mechanical sensors, computer-control, and production planning to provide a highly-automated system designed for the new millennium.
Alpha Technik Nord provides state-of-art continuous casting machines to clients based on European market’s most up to date technology. Our Flexibility and Productivity make employees enjoy projects’ fast track implementation.
Hot Strip Mill
Depending on the thickness of the mold or slab the steel would need to go through a roughing mill. Most mini mills start with a two to three inch slab and can take the steel directly into the hot-finishing mill. Integrated mills, which start with a much thicker eight to ten inch slab use “roughers” ahead of the finish mills.
Here, each slab travels through up to six rolling stands, which reduce the thickness of the slab from roughly two inches to gauges from 0.055” to 0.94”.
When the steel has been reduced to the proper gauge it passes over a “run out” table where it is sprayed with water from the top and bottom to the desired coiling temperature. The steel chemistry and processing temperature determine the mechanical properties.
Coils leaving the hot mill are called hot bands. Hot bands can be sold as is, skin passed or moved onto the cold mill for further processing. The largest amount of hot-band steel is used in the pipe and tubing industry.
Alpha Technik Nord is offering tailor made fully automatic hot strip lines designed and manufactured all in Europe. We meet customize demands as per customer request, undertaking Turnkey Jobs for supply and commissioning of complete Rolling Mills.
