Roll Casting of a Wire Inserted Strip
Casting of a wire-inserted strip was tried by a downward melt drag twin roll caster. Some numbers of wires of 0.3 mm diameter were inserted. Effects of the wire-interval, matrix alloy and melt temperature on the ability of the insertion of the wire were investigated. Minimum interval of the wire, with which the insertion of the wires was able, was 1.6 mm. Insertion of the wire became easy as the roll speed becomes higher. Superheat of the melt was not important factor for the insertion of the wire.
