Aluminium twin roll castings transfers benefits to magnesium

Abstract

Novelis is convinced that magnesium twin-roll casting can benefit from technology developed for aluminium. Metal feeding and tip are key elements, especially regarding heat losses compensation, compatibility with liquid magnesium and positioning. Roll coating equipment has been adapted from aluminium twin-roll casting standards. The same technology could also be applied for gap control and cooling systems as heat extraction needs are similar for magnesium and aluminium.
