The mould adjustment instrument uses a high precision electronic together with an inclinometer and three linear transducers. This instrument allows a simple and precise measurement of the position of a slab mould relative to the first strand segment. Misalignment of the mould relative to the first caster segment can be detected easily. These kind of misalignment may be the source of major steel quality issues during casting.
MiniFoot will be inserted into the mould between the broad sides. With an - optional-
fixing plate the measurement of the narrow sides is possible as well. MiniFoot delivers a substantial contribution to the quality management during steel casting.
MiniFoot comes with a calibration tool to ensure a long term stability of the measurement results.
