LMM Continuous Casting Technology Blog

The copper mould is one of the most important components of a continuous casting machine.
Whilst giving the desired shape to the steel in production it should ensure the optimal skin growth in order to contain the liquid steel during the solidification
process, therefore avoiding internal or superficial defects.
It is extremely important to design the mould considering all variables and casting practices that may affect the steel production and quality.
With more than 50 years of experience in the field, LMM MOULDS is able to design the most suitable solution for each plant.

Every mould design is based on computer aided analyses and simulations – which enable the study of the thermal heat exchange and the steel solidification along the mould – as well as on site trials results.. This tailor made approach to suit he required productivity and steel quality is key to LMM MOULDS success worldwide.
