The subject of this project is the demonstration of the feasibility of a single-belt strip casting process. In this process liquid steel is fed on a moving belt cooled from below by water. By operation and optimization of a pilot caster, ensueing problems have been identified and corresponding solutions have been developed. For this purpose casting trials with different steel grades were performed. The properties of the as cast strip such as the thickness uniformity and the internal structure were investigated. In order to determine the mechanical properties of the hot rolled product rolling trials were performed.
