  • Patent number: 6382304
    Abstract: A process for producing slabs in a continuous casting installation and a continuous casting mold, in particular for the continuous casting of steel slabs, having wide side walls and narrow side walls which delimit the slab mold cavity least one of the wide side walls movable transversely with respect to the mold axis and at least one of the narrow side walls, which can be clamped in between the wide side walls, displaceable transversely with respect to the mold axis in order to change the shape of the strand cross section by an adjustment drive acting in the horizontal direction. Each narrow side is composed of at least two wedge-shaped parts. Mutually facing contact surfaces extend over the entire length (height of the narrow side wall) of each part and the plane of the mutually touching surfaces faces in substantially the same direction as the corresponding wide side inner surfaces (51, 52) assigned to one another with a rotational angle of &ggr;=0 to 30°.

  • Patent number: 6053021
    Abstract: A rolling mill, especially a hot flat-rolling mill, comprises a pair of working rolls which are supported either directly or via intermediate rolls on a pair of supporting rolls, the pair of working rolls being mutually axially displaceable. To permit far-reaching influencing and compensation of the bending of the rolls which occurs due to thermal cambering and under load, and of the roll gap changes which are produced thereby, and thus to achieve optimum profile control and flatness control of this rolling mill, each of the mutually axially displaceable working rolls comprises a hollow roll with a cavity designed to be rotationally symmetrical in relation to a longitudinal axis of the roll and asymmetrical in relation to an imaginary transverse plane inter-secting the longitudinal axis at a center of the roll crown. The first and second working rolls include identically designed cavities turned through with respect to each other.

  • Patent number: 4032024
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for the even distribution of charge material in shaft furnaces, particularly high pressure blast furnaces. The apparatus includes a stationary hopper with a distributor pipe hinged universally below it. The universal swivel hinge is formed with an annular support swiveling around a first horizontal axis, the distributor pipe being suspended in such annular support to swivel around a second axis at right angles to the first axis.
