Title: STRAND CASTING SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPERATING SAME
Abstract:
The invention relates to a strand casting system and a method for operating same. The strand casting system has a mold (110) with an inner casting chamber (114) for casting a cast strand (200) from a liquid metal material. A strand guiding device (120) with an arcuate section (122) is mounted downstream of the mold (110) in the casting direction G in order to redirect the cast strand to the horizontal. The arcuate section (122) is arranged directly downstream of the mold (110) in the casting direction G. In order to prevent the disadvantages known from using arcuate molds, the casting chamber (114) is delimited in a linear manner, and the longitudinal direction S of the linearly delimited casting chamber (114) of the mold is oriented tangentially to the arcuate section (122) at a transition point (125) between the mold (110) and the arcuate section (122).
