The following were investigated in order to increase the share of continuous casting in the production of small casting sections and their processing without intermediate shaping: - casting tests, as well as accompanying metallurgical and material-specific investigations of high-grade steels and special materials, which have not been mastered at all or only insufficiently from the point of view of production technology (tool steels, boron-alloyed special structural steels, martensitic and ferritic chrome steels, austenitic and austenitic-ferritic special materials); - systematic determination of the regularities and control of the core structure during solidification of high-grade alloy steels. The research work resulted, for example, in the introduction of a method for billet casting of boron-containing steels without a submerged nozzle, as well as in starting production of continuous cast tool steels up to 1.4% C and hot work steels with 5 to 8% Cr.
