Article Preview

The authors investigated the mold electromagnetic stirring technology of horizontal continuous casting for CuCrZr alloys. Due to the oxidizability of the zirconium, the CuCrZr alloys are difficult to produce by continuous casting process. A short process for CuCrZr alloys material engineering is urgently needed. The mold electromagnetic field improved the surface of CuCrZr wire rod. The cast structure was also refined. With the help of mold electromagnetic stirring technology, CuCrZr wire rods were horizontal continuous cast. By using a set of suitable parameters, big weight wire rods with an excellent surface were cast. The CuCrZr wire rod possessed an average grain size of 1.5mm, and the columnar crystal proportion was less than 10%.
