Modular Caster

There are numerous steel melt shops with smaller capacity induction furnaces that have been casting ingots due to the non-availability of simple and economically viable billet casting technology. Such plants need modular caster which can be installed in a reasonably shorter duration without affecting production and without any major alteration in existing infrastructure. Electrotherm took initiative to develop Modular and Compact Billet Casting Technology to meet the needs of existing ingot making units willing to migrate to billet making and new mini steel plants. It is suitable for casting heat size as small as 5 ton and modules are available for casting section from 80 mm x 80 mm to 150 mm x 150 mm reduced operating cost and casters that are simple and safer to operate.
Modular Caster Unit
  • Higher reliability and optimum cost of operation.
  • Modular design with factory assembled and aligned equipment reduces the civil cost, erection, and commissioning line.
  • Modular design with the possibility of increasing the number of strands in the future by adding multiple modules at the same place for capacity expansion.
  • Operational flexibility and minimum time required for size change.
  • Rigid dummy bar for enhanced productivity and quick re-stranding.
  • Motorized Tundish trolley for a quick change of Tundish.
  • PLC-based secondary spray cooling system ensures optimum cooling for minimum scale formation and direct rolling.
  • Forced mould lubrication ensuring controlled oil flow.
  • User-friendly with low operating and maintenance cost.


  • Complete “Melt to Cast Solutions”.
  • Minimum transition time from existing ingot making to billet plant making almost without affecting existing plant productivity.
  • The required casting platform size is 6 m x 9 m for a single strand and suitable for existing ingot making plants.
  • The flexibility of operating each strand independently for optimized caster usage according to availability of molten metal.
  • Flexible configuration with the possibility of up-gradation and expansion by adding modules.
  • Substantial saving due to reduced scale generation.


We convey our sincere thanks and our appreciation to M/ s Electrotherm family for the development, realization, testing, qualification and commissioning of 10 MW power supply system for our Plasma Wind Tunnel facility. We are extremely glad that M/ s Electrotherm has taken up this challenging task, when no such system was existing in the country. We wish, we should have many more such collaborative ventures in future with M/ s Electrotherm and contribute to ISRO's futuristic advanced R&D programmes.
Mr. P.A. Krishnamoorthy, VSSC-ISRO
Hereby we feel glad to have 4000 KW/ 10 Ton DTi Furnace set along with HSMC lX Caster. We have commissioned this equipments in our plant on 21st May 2018 & found performance which was committed by Electrotherm was achieved. Electrotherm's project execution was extraordinary & their process understanding & support was remarkable. Looking to the performance of other equipments of other makes running within our group, we have found performance of Electrotherm make DTi Furnace to be best.
