The use of technological packages and consequently following our technologic & continuous casting principle, we achieve the shortest start-up times in the industry 4.0. Our modular solution approach ideally meets all technological requirements and customer demands, for both new and existing casters and for the production of carbon, stainless and special AHSS (Advanced High-Strength Steels) steel grades. The ever-greater demands for quality and the ongoing development of steel grades mean that the quality level at every stage of the casting process will continue to grow in importance in the future. As our example the CastFlex Oscillation (CFO) technology represents in 2019, the latest generation of Ind. 4.0, oscillation systems and saves money in operation compared to other systems . The hydraulic oscillation drive system enables the dynamic adjustment of frequency, stroke, and wave form during casting for optimized negative strip time. The wear-free leaf-spring oscillator guidance system guarantees the highest guidance accuracy, outstanding operational safety, and low maintenance costs. The design allows a quick coupling of all media supplies to the mold and automatically completes the alignment of the mold and oscillator. By our metallurgical experience and technical expertise to supply cutting-edge technology for maximized bloom caster performance, production and upgrading.Keywords: AHSS, continous casting, oscillation, industry 4.0, tundish
