Vertical type twin roll casting process, Aluminum alloy AC7A, Castability, Surface condition, Strip thickness.


Twin roll casting process is able to produce a strip from molten metal directly. Thus this process has a possibility to reduce total cost of sheet making comparing to conventional rolling process. Strip casting process has some disadvantages. Casting speed depends on the material properties. It is difficult to determine the casting conditions. Twin roll casting of aluminum alloy AC7A using commercial scale machine was operated. The aims of this study is to investigate the effect of the roll speed. Continuous strip could not be produced at the roll speed 5 m/min. Continuous strip could be produced at the roll speed 10 m/min. However, cracks were observed. Continuous strip could be produced at the roll speed 20 m/min. However, cracks were observed too.
