On topic

Introduction into the technology, process and applications with the following topics:

  • Overview to all CC technologies
  • Twin Roll Caster
  • General aspects of cooling conditions - Copper Shells
  • Differences in material properties depending on used technology
  • Forming – Fundamentals and From (CC-)Sheet to Formed Parts
  • Continuous Casting – Opportunities and outlook from an aluminium foil perspective
  • Potential Markets for CC Sheets



Continuous Casting (CC) is an interesting alternative to the conventional DC process route for flat products. The equipment is much more compact, the investments are smaller and it is only one process step from molten metal
to a flat semi product with a thickness of usually 3-6 mm.

This seminar describes the different CC technologies and machines, the properties of the CC product and established as well as potential markets.
