Paper Title:
Experimental Study on Horizontal Continuous Casting of 6061 Aluminium Alloy Bar Process
  Abstract

The aluminium alloy bar is mainly obtained by hot extrusion in the past. In order to increase the production efficiency and reduce the cost, a new mold is designed, and horizontal continuous casting is used to produce the aluminium alloy bar in this work. The results show that aluminium alloy bar can be cast by horizontal continuous casting. The asymmetry of the sump is overcome by optimizing the design of the mold. When the temperature of the melt was 730°C, casting speed is 650 mm/min, cooling water is 15 L/min, the quality of lubricating oil is 0.5 ml/min, and the ingot with good surface quality can be cast.
