Innovation in steel continuous casting : past, present and future*
Innovations dans le domaine de la coulée continue : regards sur le passé, le présent et le futur
From 1950 to 1980, continuous casting has become the major solidification technique in steelshops. This is the result of continued innovation and developments. Although conventional continuous casting remains the key technology, in the recent years near-net- shape casting has taken over in specific areas. Productivity, quality and cost efficiency remain the driving forces for further developments.
