THE GOAL OF OUR WORK IS TO CONSTANTLY IMPROVE OUR PRODUCTS FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR CUSTOMERS. TO THIS END, WE ARE CONTINUALLY WORKING ON NEW MATERIALS AND MATERIAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES.

KME Special Products & Solutions can provide detailed support on the design of new moulds. On request, we will also do the entire detailed engineering based on the plant maker’s design drawings. For the development of moulds, we can use KME’s core expertise and knowledge. Our R & D department have been set up in such a way that it can deal with the complete range of assignments, from developing new mould materials right through to supporting the application of the new products.

REVAMPS AND UPGRADE SOLUTIONS FOR CASTING MACHINES: DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND SUPPLY FROM ONE HAND.

Whether your requirement is for mould re-design for higher casting speed, new casting sizes or optimized cooling: KME Special Products & Solutions can supply the complete engineering and caster steel components, like water jackets, rolls, nozzles etc. Tailor-made straightforward solutions are our engineering targets. Any new automation features can be integrated into the design using your preferred supplier and equipment.

COPPER MATERIALS HAVE A RELATIVELY LOW HARDNESS AND THUS LOW RESISTANCE TO ABRASIVE WEAR. FOR THIS REASON, A HIGH DEGREE OF WEAR CAN OCCUR IN THE LOWER PART OF THE MOULD WHERE THE STRAND SHELL HAS HARDENED.

To counteract and improve the service life of moulds, We  have developed advanced mould coatings. Recommendations for the most appropriate coating can only ever be made in relation to specific system and casting parameters. Close consultation between the system operator and KME Special Products & Solutions is necessary to ensure that the right systems are selected.

MATERIAL SCIENCES AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF COPPER ALLOY SYSTEMS HAVE FOR MANY YEARS REPRESENTED AN IMPORTANT AREA FOR KME AS THE LEADING MANUFACTURER OF COPPER PRODUCTS.

A major part of our efforts in these fields is dedicated to the development of innovative copper alloys for the continuous casting moulds. Therefore, depending on the application and the range of properties required, the mould material can be adjusted using specially tailored alloys.

AS A MATTER OF BASIC PRINCIPLE, MOULDS ARE DESIGNED AS EXPENDABLE ITEMS. YET, IN CERTAIN CASES IT MAY BE ECONOMICALLY WORTHWHILE FOR A CLIENT TO HAVE HIS LARGE-SECTION MOULDS REWORKED.

Our maintenance and repair services for mould tubes and plates include the proper remachining as well as repair of stud-welded moulds and possible recoating of the copper, plus a complete overhaul of the entire mould assembly, if needed. These services for maintenance, assembling, recoating etc. are for customer requirements on a worldwide basis to be handled in the network of our mould service centers.
