Fully automatic dummy bar system from Primetals Technologies receives FAC at Baosteel

In May 2020, Primetals Technologies received the final acceptance certificates (FAC) for a fully automatic dummy bar top feeding system for the CC3 two-strand continuous caster of Baoshan Iron and Steel Co Ltd. (Baosteel) at Steelworks No. 1 in Shanghai. With the new solution the operator starts the fully automatic insertion of a dummy bar into the mold and the fully automatic takeover from hoist to car each by pushing only one button. To witness and validate the position of all moveable components, Primetals Technologies has installed several additional safety-related measuring systems as e.g. safety encoders, laser distance sensors and safety limit switches. The new solution relieves operators from routine tasks, saves valuable time and guarantees safety requirements despite the automatic processes. The automatic sequence can be started from the casting platform (by push button on LCP) or from the main control room via Level 1 – HMI (Integrated Control Center – Room “ICC”).
