The results that were obtained allowed performance of casting up to 20 tonnes, and subsequently to obtaining the analysis of problems related to the process itself, as well as trying improved solutions to the main plant components. The parameters affecting the strip quality were also determined. The strip qualities were improved both in terms of profile uniformity and surface quality. Finally, the first economic evaluations of the strip casting process were carried out based on this knowledge. This work has allowed the demonstration of the possibility of performing such a process on an industrial scale, to determine clearly problems, and to analyse some potential technological solutions as fundaments to the final set-up of this technology and its future industrial utilisation.
