Abstract

In this study, a forming belt was attached to the free solidified surface side of melt drag process which is a kind of single roll process. The purpose of the forming belt is forming and cooling the free solidified surface of the strip. Al-Si alloy was used as the experimental specimen. As the result , this forming belt made possible to produce strips with sound surfaces , improved and controlled cooling conditions at higher roll speed than the conventional strip casters and improve and control cooling conditions.
