Graphite Dies and Molds for Continuous Casting

Continuous casting is a reliable casting process for the production of high-quality semi-finished products from ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. In continuous casting, liquid metal is continuously poured into a bottomless cooled die. Inside the die, the strand shell solidifies, which is then drawn off downwards, sideways or upwards, usually with the core still liquid.

Our graphite dies and molds are designed for different casting techniques and metals. They invariably impress with their consistent material characteristics such as their thermal conductivity, chemical and thermal resistance and their high strength.
