In order to increase the production rates and to secure the base production technology for the hard casting materials, a re-start casting technology as an active curing methodology has been developed to reduce the number of sticking type breakouts in the thin slab caster with high speed. It consists of the healing casting conditions of breakouts, the mold level control method for preventing the overflow or big change of molten steel near meniscus and the control of cooling rate at second cooling zone for rolling under the limits of rolling force and torque at the directly linked roughing mill. By applying the proposed technology, the automatic restarting rate of breakout is remarkably increased from 0 to 92%.
