  • continuous casting;
  • horizontal continuous casting of copper alloy billets


Nowadays horizontal continuous casting plants are capable of producing billets up to 400 mm diameter in single or multiple strand operation. It is realized however that the tendency, particularly for leaded brasses, goes towards casting larger billet diameters and multiple strand operation. With the example of two recently supplied horizontal continuous casting plants it is outlined how the developments of Demag Technica contribute to the raise of competitiveness of its customers.
