Paper Title:
Effect of Processing Parameters on Microstructure and Properties of Continuously Cast Al-Mg Sheets
  Abstract

Inner panels of modern ecological cars are nowadays manufactured from Al-Mg alloys. Continuously twin-roll cast sheets are a cost effective substitution for direct-chill cast sheets. The effect of composition and down-stream processing on sheet properties should be well understood in order to produce high quality products, which exhibit good formability and high strength. Finegrained microstructure and well-balanced texture are the necessary pre-requisites. Results of the investigation of twin-roll cast AlMg2Mn0.8 and AlMg3 alloys are reported. Sheets of 1.0 mm gauge were prepared using different processing routes. The route involving homogenisation results in grain coarsening and anisotropy, however, deep-drawing ability is affected only a little.
