Flow control mold electromagnetic stirrer ( FC MEMS )

For low to medium speed conventional slab casting

The FC MEMS will improve your end-product quality, casting speed and in turn the profitability of your operation.

A whole range of metallurgical improvements such as higher and more uniform meniscus temperature, reduced inclusions and gas bubbles, a more even molten powder layer, more homogeneous shell growth and decreased risk for mild face longitudinal cracks help to significantly improve your product quality. The FC MEMS even has a clever design, installed directly at the meniscus, allowing for maximum effect through direct flow control, which eliminates the need for additional control hardware, thus keeping your investment costs to a minimum.
