Abstract

The project's objective was to develop a highly productive near net shape strip casting process, which could be applied to the production of hot rolled strip for the large majority of steel grades, offering economical benefits compared to the conventional process route. By design, construction and operation of pilot installations, problems of this process were identified and solutions developed. It was shown that strip can be cast possessing the geometrical requirements for in-line rolling. The direct strip casting (DSC) process is considered to be a promising process.
