About the Program

Developed and presented with the talented resources of the Continuous Casting Technology Committee, this informative program targets the heart of steelmaking: the frontline operator. The key focus of the program is to discuss the practical aspects of casting slabs, billets and blooms, while introducing the theoretical concepts. By achieving the proper teaching balance, attendee understanding of the process is ensured without the need for a technical background. This course is a must for the progressive, informed and educated steelmaker of the future!

Who Should Attend

This training seminar has been designed for the frontline casting employee. It would also be beneficial to individuals newly assigned to work in the casting area, suppliers of casting consumables and services, as well as others wishing to review major variables that impact the quality of as-cast products. The presentations will be geared toward general casting principles, with all machine types represented.
