Kiss-Point Position Control of Solidification Layer and Process Optimization for Twin-Roll Casting of Magnesium Alloys
The solidification and process optimization for twin-roll casting of magnesium alloys have been studied. Effects of roll speed, roller diameter, setback length and strip thickness on the position of the solidification front and the surface quality of strip were analyzed through experiments. A kiss-point model which considers the strip thickness, set-back length and roll speed was established to optimize process and enhance the surface quality of magnesium alloy strip. Results showed that the twin-roll casting process could be effectively stabilized and optimized under the direction of the model, and the defectless magnesium alloy strip was obtained.
