ABB Ability™ Optimold Control
Close the loop between electromagnetic actuators and sensors and achieve real-time, automatic online control of mold fluid flow in continuous slab casting.
ABB's market-leading range of high performance electromagnetic stirring and braking devices are well known for their ability to generate consistent and long-term improvements in both productivity, end-product quality and profitability in continuous slab casting.
Digitalization now provides us with new tools that enable us to further enhance the performance of existing products, and unlock added value for our customers.
The ABB Ability™ Optimold Control closes the loop between electromagnetic actuators and sensors
and provides real-time, automatic online control of mold fluid flow. Via higher utilization of the electromagnetic stirring and/or braking device's capacity and performance, near meniscus
conditions can now be influenced even more than before, enabling steel producers to reach as yet
unprecedented levels of quality and process optimization in slab casting.
