Paper Title:
The Effect of Casting Speed on Sump Shape and Ingot Surface of HDC Casting 7075 Aluminum Alloy Ingot
  Abstract

7075 aluminum alloy ingot with the diameter of 100 mm has been produced by horizontal direct chill casting in different casting speed. The effect of casting speed on the sump profile and the ingot surface quality was studied by sump profile observation. It was found that increasing the casting speed results in the deepening of the liquid pool, the adding of segregation knots and the reducing of cold shouts in the ingot surface. It is also found that the depth of the liquid pool is directly proportional to the casting speed and the squared radius of the ingot.
