Based on original designs of the end customer, Galbiati has produced and supplied to a known Indian steel mill two spare segments for a continuous casting plant.
The thickness of the casting sheet is precisely calibrated by special high pressure hydraulic cylinders fed by stainless steel pipes mounted on the segments.
Most of the mechanical, hydraulic components of the segments for continuous casting have been purchased by the most qualified European manufacturers.
A complete pre-assembly of the segments for continuous casting was carried out at the assembly department of Officine Galbiati and a final test was carried out with the full satisfaction of the Indian end customer’s inspector.
A special maritime packaging has been designed and manufactured at the Galbiati workshop to allow the shipment of each segment for continuous casting completely assembled and therefore ready for quick assembly on site.
A technical and quality manager of the Galbiati staff was requested by the Indian customer for on-site supervision in order to reconfirm the maximum performance and the good operation of the segments for continuous casting.
Technical details of segments for continuous casting:
- Weight of each segment: 18,000 Kg
- Continuous casting = up to 1,400 mm of width.
