Near Net Shaped Casting Explained

A new research program at Warwick University was featured in a recent issue of Steel Times International. Warwick University operates two Gleeble systems including the highly specialized HDS-V40 Direct Rolling Simulator.  The team at DSI is proud to support Warwick in their efforts to develop new processes and production techniques.  For the full article, please click here or on the image below.

"As part of a 3.5-year EPSRC project, research has begun at the University of Warwick in the UK on the metallurgical implications of moving towards near net shape casting, with a particular focus on belt casting technology. Near net shape casting has the potential to dramatically reduce energy costs associated with steelmaking while broadening the range of alloys that are currently unable to be produced by conventional means."
