  • DEVELOPMENTS OF THE INSTITUTE :: PROCESS OF CONTINUOUS HORIZONTAL CASTING

    Continuous casting of cast iron

    The peculiarity of the process of continuous casting of ingots and billets as compared to single time casting methods is temporally and spacially stable position of crystallization front at simultaneous feed of metal and pulling of the ingot. This provides high quality of billets.

    Advantages:

    In comparison with temporary mold casting, continuous horizontal casting results in smaller capital outlays, reduction of casting production cost by 30-50%, 2-4 fold decrease of machining allowance, 2-4 fold increase of labor productivity and up to 90-92% ingot product yield, wear resistance of articles 40 - 50% and hydrodensity 1,5 - 2 times. Most effective are methods of continuous casting with horizontal technical axis. Results of theoretical and experimental research turned out a scientific base for development of equipment for continuous horizontal casting and methods of intensification of the process.
    The Institute offers equipment and lines for continuous casting of cast iron and nonferrous alloys.

    On the base of the Institute operates experimental production of continuous-cast billets of cast iron and nonferrous metals.

    Possible application field:

    The technology and equipment can be used for production of billets for machine-tool and mechanical engineering industries as well as for hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. Steel and cast iron scrap, foundry and conversion cast iron, nonferrous alloys and metal scrap can be used as starting material. Billets have preset structure, physical and mechanical properties.
