  • continuous casting technology;
  • magnesium


Regarding the deficits and potentials in the field of wrought alloys the development of a magnesium suitable continuous casting technology to increase the spectrum of use is necessary. The specific requirements for such a technology was shown and the implementation of an installation model basing on a new concept was described. Therefore the Institute of Materials Science has an installation at its disposal which first facilitates the determination of all important casting parameters and in the longer term to transfer these on an industrial scale.
