Description: This lecture gives an overview about the possibilities to produce aluminium foilstock and wire-bar in a continuous way. Continuous casting is the preferred casting method in modern plants because it offers higher productivity. But there are limitations in the use of this technology because not all alloys can be cast. The product shows properties that can differ from conventional material. This lecture demonstrates the principal of operation; technologies for continuous casting; types of casters; areas of application; properties of the products; behaviour of the products in further processing. General knowledge in materials engineering, some knowledge about aluminium alloy constitution and heat treatment, engineering background in manufacturing processes and basic knowledge of foundry practice is assumed.
