Continuous Casting

A casting technique in which an ingot, billet, tube, or other shape is continuously solidified while it is being poured, so that its length is not determined by mould dimensions.

Used chiefly to produce semifinished mill products such as billets, blooms, ingots, slabs and tubes.
