Casting of Clad Strip by a Roll Caster
The three layers clad strip was fabricated by a tandem positioned vertical type twin roll casters. The effect of the casting conditions of the overlay strip on the interface between the base strip and the overlay strip was investigated. The temperature of the molten metal, roll-load and solidification length were chosen as the casting conditions. Base strip was AA8079 and overlay strip was AA6022. The proper melt temperature of the overlay strip was above the liquidus line of the base strip. The proper roll-load, which was lower than rolling, was existed. There was not clearance at the interface when the solidification length was appropriate.
