For production of Copper Chrome Zirconium rods and other similar progressive alloys, in which the liquid metal is protected in an Argon gas atmosphere, is available as: a two strand production machine for up to 3,500 t/y or a one strand machine for R+D and product development. Applications for CuCrZr rods include the manufacture of trolley wire rod, connector pins, welding tips, high voltage contact strips or small diameter wire. Benefits of continuous casting directly to 12mm – 30mm diameter rod replaces the need and production costs for Billet casting, extrusion and rolling significantly. Reducing the fabrication cost per ton. Reducing the metal inventory cost by shortening the manufacturing cycle time and increasing productivity by increasing the yield.

Copper feedstock required in the form of 8.0mm CuOF rod. Alloying element is required in the form of powder compressed inside cored wire. Cored wire is available from Affival and priced according to the weight of powder.

Rautomead has a single strand sealed lid casting machine installed at the facility in Dundee. This is available to be commissioned for R+D sample production for customers’ specific alloy requirements.

Single strand sealed lid casting machines are available sale to companies who want the flexibility to control their own developments and who want to minimise the development cycle time.
