A Single Roll Caster for Aluminum Alloy Strip
Single roll caster to cast strip with sound free solidified surface was invented. A scraper was attached to the single roll caster to improve the free solidified surface. AA5182 and AA6022 strips were cast using the single roll caster equipped with the scraper. Mechanical properties of the strip were investigated by tension test, bending test and deep drawing. Mechanical properties of the strip cast by the single roll caster were as same as those made by DC casting.
