Roll Casting of Al-SiCp Strip
The strip casting of Al-SiCp alloy was operated by a high speed twin roll caster. The content of SiCp was 20Vol% and 30Vol%. Both of Al-20Vol%SiCp and Al-30Vol%SiCp strips could be cast continuously at the speed up to 90m/min. The SiCp particle distributed uniformly. This was the effect of fine grain of the strip. The as-cast strip of Al-20Vol%SiCp could be cold rolled after homogenization. The as-cast strip of Al-30Vol%SiCp could be cold rolled after once hot rolling and annealing. The as-cast strip of Al-20Vol%SiCp could be coiled at the diameter of 460mm.
