Storing and casting furnaces for continuous casting
The demands made on the quality of the melt during the manufacture of semi-finished products in the continuous casting process are growing constantly. In order to guarantee the maximum utilisation of continuous casting lines, a sufficient volume of metal at a homogeneous casting temperature must be available ready for casting at all times.
For these applications, INDUGA has optimised the induction heated storage furnace with forehearth. It serves as a buffer between melting and casting. This type of furnace is used in vertical continuous casting for direct metering of the metal into the moulds and in horizontal continuous casting for charging multi-chamber casting furnaces. The furnace home position is tilted compared to its casting position.
