Inline Rolling of 5182 Aluminum Alloy Strip Cast by a Vertical Type High Speed Twin Roll Caster
An inline hot rolling was operated on 5182 aluminum alloy strip cast using a vertical type high speed caster (VHSTRC) at the speed of 60 m/min. A porosity existing at center line of the thickness and a ripple mark on the surface, these are typical defects of the strip cast by the VHSTRC, could be improved by the inline rolling. The rolling speed was as same as the roll-casting-speed of 60m/min. The temperature of the strip, when the inline rolling was operated, was 450oC. The reduction of the strip of the inline rolling was 35%.
