At Metec, Alpine Metal Tech will introduce the “Alpine Metal Tech Continuous Casting Machine Package (AMT CCM Package)”, a complete solution of harmonized integrated systems which optimize the continuous casting process from the liquid steel down to the semi-finished product. The package comprises equipment for ladle and tundish preheating, a shroud manipulator, powder feeding equipment, a torch cutting machine and deburrer, marking and reading equipment as well as optical devices for measuring and inspecting slabs, blooms or billets.

The AMT CCM Package consists of perfectly harmonized machinery of the brands Numtec, Gega, Magnemag, Koch H&K and Knorr. The equipment optimizes the continuous casting process at various phases from the steel ladle down to the inspection of the cast slabs, blooms or billets.

The harmonized interaction of all individual components perfects the casting process, for example, by adjusting the parameters of the torch cutting machine with the deburrer and optimizing the processing for downstream process steps such as the marking of the material with high-resolution systems. Uniform visualization and consistent user guidance make the process transparent, assisting the personnel in the control room.

In addition, the AMT CCM Package reduces the implementation effort when building a new plant or revamping an existing one because there is only one interface connecting the individual systems of the package with the process control and level-2 automation systems.

According to Dr. Andreas Pichler, CEO of Alpine Metal Tech, the package gives operators of continuous casting plants a clear added value: “Being a one-stop solution, the AMT CCM Package harmonizes the various components of equipment that make up a continuous casting machine and are crucial to the quality of the cast products. But the AMT CCM Package also means: only one person of contact for various key plant components and clear responsibilities in all matters of plant construction, commissioning and service.”

In long production, the one-stop solutions offered by Alpine Metal Tech also cover equipment that is even further down the process chain: for example, group company Knorr will show measuring and testing systems for sections at Metec; Koch H&K will present plants and equipment for rolling mills and finishing facilities as far down the process chain as the loading of finished products.
