Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19817034A1] At least one of the roll pairs (4, 5) is continuously pressed against the slab (7) with a defined, variable pressure during the entire casting, to reduce slab thickness by at least 2 % with respect to its value at the full solidification point (17) and maintain constant a preset target slab thickness. The apparatus incorporates means (19, 20) to measure the roll gap and means (11, 12) to produce and transfer a required variable pressure to the slab.
