Title: Changing an ingot profile by compressing the mold to a different dimension

Abstract

For the past few years, Ravenswood Aluminum Corporation (RAC) has had a problem with a high number of rescalps on their 24 inch x 55 inch ingot size. It was discovered that the molds were designed to cast at faster speeds than are currently being used. Instead of the ingots having a nice flat profile (24 inch thick), this design problem is giving an ingot which is 1/4 inch bigger in the center than on the sides. RAC is in the process of having some of the molds compressed to a smaller dimension in order to get a flatter ingot profile and reduce the rescalp problem. This paper will compare the ingot profile before and after the molds were compressed and the impact on rescalp rates.
