Billet-Guiding System for a Continuous Casting Plant
Sprache des Patenttitels:
In a strand guide for a continuous casting plant comprising a plurality of strand supporting elements for supporting the strand, in particular support segments carrying supporting rollers, several support segments being fastened adjacent each other on a supporting framework designed in one piece in its longitudinal extension, each support segment is fastened to the supporting framework by a fixed bearing and a movable bearing spaced apart thereform in the longitudinal extension of the strand guide, each support segment, by at least one bearing, is pivotally mounted to the supporting framework so as to be pivotable about an axis, the axis being oriented transversely with respect to the longitudinal extension of the strand guide and horizontally, as well as in a vertical plain passing through the longitudinal extension of the supporting framework and by at least one bearing is mounted so as to be adjustable with respect to the supporting framework in a direction toward the pivoting movement of the support segment. For simple adjustment of the correct position of the support segments, a measuring device for detecting the pivoting movement of the support segment, preferably a position sensor or an angle measuring device, is provided which, via a controller, is coupled with an adjusting device for adjusting the position of the support segment.
