Continuous Casting

Continuous Casting is a process in which the metal is continuously solidified while being poured through a water cooled mold which determines cross sectional shape. Castings can be sawed off at any desired length.

Advantages

Continuous Casting allows manufacture of metal slabs or bars in large amounts in a short time. Mechanical properties are high and extremely reproducible.

Disadvantages

Only simple shapes can be cast which should have a stable cross section. Large capital investment is necessary to set up process. Not feasible for small production.
