Continuous Casting: What it is

Continuous casting is a process during which molten metal is poured into an open and oscillating mould called crucible to then run beyond it in a vertical, horizontal or curved direction. While running through the crucible, the liquid metal is continuously cooled and solidifying, starting from the outer crust, assuming the section of the crucible. The solidified product, whether bar, slab or shaped, is then straightened and cut and goes on to the subsequent processes, treatments and finishes.

Continuous casting is a process used for the production of large semi finished products in great quantities in a short time such as bars, profiles, slabs, belts and pipes in steel and non-ferrous metals such as copper, aluminum, brass and precious metals.

Continuous Casting Simulation: How it works

ProCAST simulates the complete continuous casting line, from the tundish, to the crystalliser, to secondary cooling.
ProCAST continuous casting simulation software provides a complete solution for the continuous and semi continuous casting process, including the Direct Chill (DC) casting simulation. The software can simulate the stationary status conditions, as well as the initial and final stages of the continuous casting process. The MiLE algorithm is also available to study the transient.
ProCAST also offers a unique function: the user functions that allow end users to program their own specific process requirements.

QuikCAST Light, QuikCAST and ProCAST are a tool dedicated to production and are therefore simple to use. The technical operator, the quality department and the technical department will use simulation daily to address problems with the workpiece. The software guides the user step-by-step in importing geometries, selecting materials and setting process parameters. These tasks require little effort by personnel. The three softwares can also be used in parallel by the Research & Development department for new products.

Furthermore, thanks to the QuikCAST Light, QuikCAST and ProCAST continuous casting simulation software programs, the best possible conditions can be met to obtain a healthy and virtually flawless product, in an initial stage for the development of the casting line and process and for assessing the quality of the final semi-finished product.

For the purchase, hire or a DEMO of the software or if you want to take advantage of a simulation service specially-made by our technical department, write or call us at +39 030 3365383
