What is continuous casting?
The process of providing the solidification of the melted metal in the reservoir in a certain section with the help of a mold by cooling the area where solidification begins is called continuous casting.
What Are Continuous Casting Methods?
The content of the mold is determined according to the metallurgical properties of the metal to be cast. Aluminum, Copper, Nickel, Brass, Gold, Silver, Bronze etc. Graphite is preferred as a mold for the materials. Since graphite has more than one usage area, manufacturers produce Graphite with different properties with recipes specially prepared for the relevant applications. It is inevitable to encounter unwanted results if graphite is not selected suitable for the mine to be cast in continuous casting application. In continuous casting mold, Graphite thermal expansion coefficient, thermal conductivity, grain size, porosity etc. are the most suitable for the metallurgical properties of the mine. It is determined by looking at its properties. After determining the correct Graffiti, the machining process, which is just as important, is started. Both the selection of graphite and the machining process are of great importance for the molten metal to be poured at optimum quality from the beginning of solidification. Even if you have chosen your graphite correctly, a mold that is not properly processed can cause melt to leak into undesirable areas and negatively affect the solidification process of the mine. In order to reach the right result in the final product, the quality of Graphite should be determined with a professional approach and the mold should be manufactured.
