Continuous casting means continuous development. The coordinated work in designing, operation, and research led to a fast success of a new technology during 30 years after a 100 years period of basic inventing and testing. Continuous casting of steel is the team play of metallurgy, mechanical and electrical engineering, and all kinds of information technology. Common R&D projects generated knowledge and transfer of results to daily operation. Starting from roots and simple tests CC today is a technology which shows up with high reliability. More wishes of steel producers, but also improvement ideas from research institutes, focuses the intention of development on widening the technological windows, on pushing technical boundaries of productivity, product geometry and quality, on automation of steelmaking concerning melt preparation, casting, and rolling. Due to the rising complexity of strict supply chains and the applied surveillance by computer programs, the fundamental education as well as continuous training of involved staff becomes more and more important. In this paper, the way of continuous development shall be assigned and some modern continuous casting equipment is high lighted.
