Casting of a Wire Inserted Strip Using a Twin Roll Caster Equipped with Two Nozzles
Casting of a wire inserted strip was investigated using a downward melt drag twin roll caster. A nozzle was mounted to each roll. The wire was inserted between the lower and upper strip. Effect of use of two nozzles on the insertion of the wire was investigated. The insertion of the wire by the two nozzles was easier than one nozzle. The surfaces of the wire inserted strip cast using two nozzles was more sound than that cast using one nozzle. The position of the wire at thickness direction was almost center. When different aluminum alloys were poured from an upper nozzle and from a lower nozzle, a wire inserted clad strip could be cast.
