  • Horizontal continuous casting with oscillating mould (HOM-TEC-process) Part 1: Casting of round and square billets of high-alloy steel and superalloys


The transition from two-heat rolling of bars and wire rod in a wide range of special and high-grade steels to single-heat rolling from continuously cast material has been successfully completed in recent years. This advantageous production route was to be extended also to high-alloy special steels difficult to cast. For this purpose the horizontal continuous casting technology with oscillating mould (HOM-TEC-process) was tested and further developed in the Siegen plant of Krupp Stahl AG.
