In December 2018, Primetals Technologies received the Final acceptance Certificate (FAC) for the modernized two-strand continuous slab caster CCM1 in steel works no. 3 of Angang Iron & Steel Group Co. in Anshan, China. The objectives of the project were to improve the product quality and productivity, and also to increase the flexibility of the processing of different steel grades and casting formats. The casting plant is equipped with modern equipment and technology packages, including DynaGap Soft Reduction to improve the interior quality of the slabs.

The two-strand continuous slab caster CCM1 has a production capacity of 2.5 MMT per annum. The maximum casting speed is 2.1 m per minute. The plant casts ultra-low carbon to high carbon steels, peritectic, deep drawn and HSLA steels, as well as micro-alloyed, low-alloyed and silicon steels.

In addition, Primetals Technologies handled the basic engineering of the tundish, the ladle shroud, the dummy bar system, the supporting structure and the maintenance stands, as well as the detailed engineering for the shroud manipulator, the tundish car, mold and mold oscillator, the segments of the strand-guiding system, the secondary cooling and the dummy bar.
