ELECTROMAGNETIC STIRRER FOR DIRECT CHILL ALUMINUM CASTING
Direct chill (DC) casting is the most commonly used technology in the production of semi-finished products of aluminum alloys for plastic deformation process. After casting, a homogenization process is needed to enhance the material plasticity before the billet extrusion.
DC casting with HT-EMS technology application aims at the production of semi-finished products with fine globular structure to be extruded without intermediate thermal treatments.
- Billet globular structure
- Grain refinement
- Increase productivity
- Enhanced surface quality and lower sub-surface segregation
- Enhanced hot workability
- No homogenization needed before the extrusion process
- Smaller dimension of the intermetallic intergranular compounds
