Thin Slab Casting is a significant evolutionary step in casting methodology and allows greater efficiency and therefore cost-effectiveness to be applied to the casting process. Thin slab casting is a high-speed caster that continuously cast slab of thickness 60 to 75 mm. This thin slab is heated in a state-of-the-art tunnel furnace and is directly fed into the hot rolling mill. It is an energy-efficient process where no reheating furnace and roughing mills are required.
This module will help us to understand different slab casting methodologies and the process of casting. This will also enable the learners to know the process of developing requisite mechanical properties in the final steel strips.
