  • Publication number: 20220118507
    Abstract: A strip casting system for aluminium and/or aluminium alloys comprising a casting furnace and a revolving chill mould having a casting gap. The revolving chill mould is designed as a roll pair, roller pair, caterpillar pair or belt pair. The strip casting system has an active means for transporting metal melt from the casting furnace to the casting gap and a casting region arranged in front of the casting gap. The casting region is delimited on one side by the revolving chill mould. A melt pool is formed in the casting region, from which metal melt flows or is drawn into the casting gap. The casting furnace is connected to the casting region by a pipe system with means for feeding the metal melt into the casting region, which can feed the metal melt to the casting region below the surface of the melt pool formed in the casting region.

  • Patent number: 10413963
    Abstract: A ring rolling device includes a drive roller and a rotatable revolving drum, in which five mandrels are rotatably mounted. Ring blanks can be mounted around the mandrels. By rotating the revolver drum, the mandrels move towards and away from the drive roller. The revolver drum is arranged in relation to the drive roller such that by rotating the revolver drum a decreasing roll gap is formed between a mandrel approaching the drive roller and the drive roller, in which roll gap a ring blank mounted around the mandrel is rolled during the rotating of the revolver drum. The revolver drum has four rotatably mounted support rollers, said support rollers supporting the mandrel in the direction of the rotational axis of the revolving drum, such that, during the rolling process, the mandrel is located between the support rollers and the press element.
