Continuous Continuous Casting & Hot Rolling
Continuous casting (right, red arrows)
Method of working steel that conveys steel from its molten
state to blooms, ingots, or slabs. The white-hot metal is poured
into open-ended molds and continues on through rollers cooled
by water. A series of guide rollers further shapes the steel into
the desired form.
