Tozato Mould Profilometer

The Tozato Mold Profilometer is a system that measures the copper molds faces and diagonals cross-section profile, taper, wear, and deformity. It is composed of high precision and resolution contact sensors, monitored by a central processor and software that enables the correlation of the internal dimensions and position simultaneously. Extremely light, compact, and portable equipment, battery-operated, with accuracy of 0.02 mm and resolution of 0.01 mm.

FAQ (Frequent Asked Questions)

How long does it take to fully measure one mold?

The data gathering done with the Tozato Mould Profilometer is quick, safe and accurate. It is possible to perform all the measurements on the mould faces and diagonals within less that one minute.

Are there different system version for all kind of molds?

Yes. The Tozato Mould Profilometer is available on different versions for all kind of moulds, such as billets, blooms, beam blanks and slabs.

Is it possible to measure the mold assembled on the CCM?

Yes. However, the mould must be properly cleaned before performing the readings. Therefore, the mould must be free of debris in order to avoid any kind of alteration during the data gathering.


Taper Loss: external deformation cause internal damage?

The link between deformation on the mold external surface and taper loss on its internal faces was unknown. The correlation between those two can only be noticed through a precise […]

Cracks due to copper mould meniscus deformation

Recently, a customer hired Tozato Measurements reporting cracks in their product in a particular strand. The cause was unknown, so the work was to investigate the possible problems that would […]

Friction and its Relation with Internal Mold Condition

There is a relation between the mold internal condition and the oscillation friction during the continuous casting process. This relation, however, was only proved after applying both Mold Oscillation Monitoring […]
