AbstractA method and apparatus for rolling strip in line with a continuous caster is disclosed. A slab capable of being coiled say 1.5 inches or less, is passed through an in-line furnace to homogenize temperature and is thereafter coiled in one of two vertically aligned coilers in either side of the pass line. The slab is then payed off into a rolling mill while a subsequent slab is coiled in the other of the two coiler furnaces.
