Abstract

Horizontal continuous casting (HCC), a promising method of producing near-net-shape high quality cast bars in gray, ductile and alloy irons, was described. The typical die design, consisting of a water-cooled jacket and inserted in it graphite die, used in HCC was illustrated. The informational macrodynamics (IMD) model of HCC takes into account the interrelated thermal, diffusion, kinetic, hydrodynamic, and mechanical effects essential for the given casting process. Dimensional variation of continuously cast bars was determined by die design, the accuracy of graphite die machining, die complexity and graphite wear that in turn depends upon the length of operations.
