In a twin roller casting technique thin strips of 1-5mm thick are cast continuously and close to their final dimensions. This technique aims to cast products directly with a reduced thickness in comparison to the usual continuous casting method. Two rolls of equal diameters are placed close together and rotated counterwise. The melt is supplied between the rolls or by submerged entry nozzles or by free falling jets. This project has used melt supply by free falling jets to understand and optimize a melt supply constancy in width direction which is better than the use of submerged entry nozzles. One of main findings of this project has resulted in an optimum nozzle design to produce a jet form close to an ideal parallel jet shape.
