On the surface area of the casting material, cracks and cavities develop during continuous casting. With the scarfing technology surface impurities and the risks resulting from it can be eliminated.
For scarfing all areas of the material, 2-or 4 side scarfing machines are available with the corresponding throughput. Depending on the intended use the machines may be fitted with one or several surface torches. An additional option is to fit one or two side surface torches, thus facilitating the scarfing of both the upper and side surfaces in a single process. Height adjustment devices ensure a constant distance from the item.
