Twin-roll casting of magnesium alloys is seen as a promising processing route to enable a further development of advanced magnesium sheets for mass production. The reduction in the number of processing steps to final gauge leads to shorter production times and a decrease in production costs. The new production process for magnesium sheets allow the development of a new generation of magnesium alloys. The microstructure evolution during solidification between the TRC rolls is of great importance and can be influenced by alloy composition, addition of grain refiner or by variation of the process parameter. This presentation will discuss the effect of the influencing variables on the quality and performance of Mg sheets.
