Rautomead Limited, specialist suppliers of Continuous Casting Systems, will be promoting its new copper alloy rod casting technology which has been developed at the Rautomead R&D Centre in Dundee.
The Patented Technology includes new designs of coolers, a sealed furnace lid with controlled delivery of alloying elements using an automated grain feeder and the Affival cored wire feed unit.
This new design of alloy rod caster enables the production of complex alloys which are not possible to cast using conventional continuous casting technology. The sealed lid with enclosed atmosphere allows accurate and consistent composition control of alloys containing reactive and volatile elements e.g. Cr, Zr, Ti, Mg and eliminates the requirement for graphite flake melt cover.
