Chamfer technology, with funnel-shaped curved surface on the narrow side of the mold, is a novel technology that can effectively improve the quality of continuously cast products. This study reviews the available literature on the theoretical and applied research in chamfer technology to provide an in depth analysis of the employed approaches and the obtained results. According to theoretical research results, combined with the working conditions of slab caster, patented technologies and related equipment were developed. The research has broken the technology bottlenecks of the industrial application, while ensuring a long-life operation of the chamfer mold. In recent years, chamfer technology, which is used in slab casting processes, can prevent transverse corner cracks to form at the slab surface of micro-alloyed steel completely. Chamfer technology, which is used in thin slab casting processes, can reduce the occurrence of longitudinal surface crack of the slabs and straight edge seam defects of the rolled strip. In addition, chamfer technology, which is used in a continuous casting bloom, can reduce the risk of internal cracks and avoid the off-corner cracks occurring in as-cast bloom.
Key words: chamfer technology / transverse corner cracks / internal cracks / longitudinal surface crack / straight edge seam defects
