Upstream - Continuous casting

Tough market challenges

With worldwide steel demand and competition on the rise, continuous casting lines are under pressure to optimize production and cut costs per tonne. Many mills are trying to differentiate by improving process controls, enhancing product quality, and producing newer, higher steel grades.
Even tougher operating challenges
During operation, continuous casting lines face a range of conditions that make process and product improvements difficult to achieve. Frequent and costly shutdowns for maintenance are inevitable as water, mould powder and scale get into bearing housings.
SKF can help
Backed by decades of industry and application experience, SKF solutions are helping customers cut maintenance costs, enhance process control and increase productivity of continuous casting lines.
