||Growing concerns on energy cost and environmental issues motivate the metallurgical industries to implement novel technologies assuring reduced energy consumption and CO2 emissions. One of such technologies is thin strip casting followed by 1-2 rolling stands. A number of alloys based on iron, aluminium, magnesium, copper, nickel and titanium have been produced by strip casting and other related technologies designed for various production scales. However, attaining high product quality and production capacity at low operational cost still remains a challenge, requiring cutting edge improvements in many areas, such as the flow control of liquid metal, molten metal containment, thermomechanical processing schedule, surface quality, understanding of the microstructure-properties relationship etc. This symposium will provide an overview of the state of the art in strip casting technologies utilised for manufacturing various metallic alloys, assess the metallurgical impacts of producing strip near net-shape, and provide a platform for experts from industry and academia to exchange their ideas for further development of this eco-friendly technology.
