Abstract

The idea of twin-roll casting (TRC) was first patented by Sir Henry Bessemer in 1857. Development of the TRC process took more than 100 years and now it is commercialized for production of both ferrous and non-ferrous alloys particularly for some special steels. The process has significantly lower energy consumption and pollution compared to conventional processes and some other benefits as well as some limitations. This overview explains the history and principles of TRC for steels. Moreover, the utilization of TRC for different categories of steels and the following microstructural and mechanical properties is discussed in details.
