Different from the conventional processing, upward continuous casting has been used for manufacturing the Cu-Cr-In/Ag high strength high conductivity alloys in the present work. The behavior of the alloy samples has been measured including tensile strength, microhardness, and electrical conductivity. The microstructure after each processing step has been characterized using electron microscopy. It has been found that identical microstructure with columnar grains and precipitates due to upward continuous casting makes it possible to enhance strength whilst maintain ductility of the alloys during aging process. The combination of drawing-aging process has the potential to be repeatedly used during manufacturing of the Cu-Cr based high strength high conductivity alloys.
