Title: Method to control the axial position of slabs emerging from continuous casting and relative device

Abstract: Method and device to control the axial position of slabs emerging from a continuous casting machine, providing to control the axial position of the slab (24) in correspondence with the inlet to the first rolling stand and to act in feedback on means to modify the correct position of the axis (32) of the slab (24) in a position located between the first rolling stand and the foot rolls (26) of the ingot mold (13) from which the slab (24) emerges, wherein alignment means operating inside the furnace (15) are employed to induce a controlled lateral displacement governed by the control of the axial position of the slab (24).
