Summary

Near net shape casting of steel strip is becoming a viable alternative to the conventional route using slab casting and a hot strip mill. The twin roll process, producing strip in the thickness range of 1 to 3 mm, can save energy, investment and operational costs [1,2,3]; it is on its way into industrial realisation, not only for stainless, but possibly also for low carbon grades [4], see also [5,6]. The surface quality of twin roll cast strip can be affected by various flaws [7], among which cracking is one of the most serious defects. This paper reports observations on surface cracking and measures for crack prevention.
