Continuous Casting/Die Tapper:
Continuous casting is a process where molten metal is continuously fed to a cooled die, which is open on the lower end. For a successful process, the chilling of the metal is precisely controlled.

Project Challenges

• To compensate for shrinkage the die must be set at a taper
• The correct taper angle is crucial for a successful process.

The Solution
Utilize Sherborne Sensors’ LSOC Inclinometer or the T935 Inclinometer, depending on the cast and what part will fit the given real estate.

The sensors will also likely be installed in an enclosure and filled with fluid to isolate them from the immense temperature and vibration.

Sherborne Sensors’ high precision inclinometers measure horizontal and vertical angular inclination with virtually infinite resolution; providing highly accurate tilt and inclination measurements for demanding industrial applications.
