Surface Roughness of Cu-Be Alloy (C17200) Rod Alloy Produced by Horizontal Type Continuous Casting Process
Cu-Be alloy (C17200) rod having diameter of 23.5mm was produced by a vacuum continuous casting method at furnace temperature range of from 1240°C to 1260°C with casting speed range of from 35mm/min to 103mm/min. When the furnace temperature was 1240°C and 1250°C, Cu-Be alloy rod without fracture could successfully produced at high casting speed of 103mm/min. However, when the furnace temperature was 1260°C, the breakout occurred at casting speed faster than 78mm/min. Surface roughness (Ra) increased with increasing not only a furnace temperature but also a casting speed.
