CC (Continuous Casting) process is regarded as a landmark technology, which had revolutionized steel production along with LD converter process. Toward SDGs, not only the technology which enables higher quality steel products with higher productivity but also the one which enables new steel products with distinctive features and quality, are of demand. Electromagnetic force has an advantage, that can control the fluid velocity field and temperature field without contact with molten metal [1]. Therefore, numerous technologies that apply electromagnetic field to the CC process have been developed and contributed to the marked technological progress of continuous casting process, as shown in Table 1. In this paper, among the main functions of electromagnetic field, the applied technologies to CC mold have been overviewed and new application of electromagnetic field has been proposed with consideration of magnetic property of steel.
