Paper Title:
Amorphous Magnesium Sheet Produced by Twin Roll Casting
  Abstract

Sheets of a Mg60Cu29Gd11 alloy were produced by twin roll casting with all operational variables, except roll speed, being kept constant. As a function of the roll speed, the structure of the as-cast sheet changed from being crystalline to fully amorphous and then back to crystalline. Through careful selection of the casting speed that is suitable for the selected alloy system and with which the exit temperature of the sheet remains within the supercooled liquid region, a malleable sheet with no surface defects is produced. This work shows that twin roll sheet casting is a viable process for the production of magnesium-based bulk amorphous sheet in a continuous manner and on an industrial scale.
