Continuous casting, also called strand casting, is the process whereby molten metal is solidified into a "semifinished" billet, bloom, or slab for subsequent rolling in the finishing mills. Prior to the introduction of continuous casting in the s, steel was poured This process is used most frequently to cast steel (in terms of tonnage cast).
In a typical strip casting process, molten metal is cast directly onto a moving substrate (belt or drum), producing metal strips with thicknesses in the order of one.
