MAGMA CC: Electromagnetic Stirring in Continuous Casting Process

  • Electromagnetic stirring (EMS) are widely used to optimize the product quaity in continuous casting processes of steel
  • Robust and optimized processes by optimizing flow conditions influenced through EMS
  • Integrated calculation of Lorenz force coupled with convective flow
  • Effectivity by increasing the productivity and reducing energy consumption
