The laser triangulation method (LTM) was applied to complex evaluation of surface quality of continuously casted billets of C35 steel. Within the scope of work, a few series of laboratory hot-rolling experiments were performed to assess the deformation behaviour of various primary casting defects during the final product forming. Subsequently, laboratory rolled-out samples with identified transferred defects were thoroughly investigated by means of NDT method and metallography and the outcomes were finally used to adjust the settings of laser triangulation method for detection possibilities of surface defects typical for continuously casted billets. Based on the results, an optimization of billets grinding procedures especially in corner-regions was accomplished to achieve a stable surface quality of C35 steels.
