A ladle transfer car is a material handling tool which is used in foundries. The car carries a metal ladle, typically torpedo-shaped (with two pointed ends), from one location to another for processing molten liquid metal.[1][2] It can also be called a molten steel transporter or a Tundish transfer car.

The ladle is placed on rail trucks but can be removed to pour out the molten liquid.
