Installation into design position Continuous casting machine URALMASH

AZOVSTAL, September 2016

Features of the continuous casting machine:

  • produced by “NKMZ”
  • large size of the object ( 93 roller, length – 60 meters)
  • high installation accuracy of 0.2-0.4 mm
  • lack of embedded benchmarks
  • need to create high-precision geodetic network
  • high complexity measurements
  • need for special tooling
  • lack of time
  • worn-out equipment

Statistics show that at steelwork plants 50% of premature equipment repairs occur because of improper installation into design position
