Taewoong is an open die forging company, specialized in the production of hot forged and ring rolled parts. Recently, Taewoong utilized continuous casting facilities that can manufacture Ø 1,000 grade large diameter round bloom to increase competitiveness of the company. This study focuses installed continuous casting facilities and ring rolling process using manufactured Ø 1,000 grade round bloom. Constitution of installed facilities was introduced and characteristics of the facilities, EAF (Electric Arc Furnace), LF (Ladle Furnace), VD (Vacuum Degassing), VOD (Vacuum Oxygen Decarburization) and CC (Continuous Casting) were described. Also, ring rolling experiments were performed using manufactured Ø 1,000 grade round bloom. Hot forging process design was performed to fabricate sound products. Work sequence design was performed using FE analysis software and optimal forging work sequence was derived. With the results, sound forged parts were formed and improvement of competitiveness was verified. Raw material recovery ratio was increased and the number of process and processing time were decreased. The results show utilized continuous cast facilities give opportunity to be a world competitive company by increasing competitiveness of the company.
