Continuous Casting at Wisconsin Steel, Division of International Harvester 680075

Direct casting of steels is an innovation in the steel industry. A twelve-month experience with this new method is the subject of this paper. Several steel specifications, among them 1018–1085, 1141, and 8620 have been directly cast into billet form. However this process has not yet been attempted with analyses less than 0.10% silicon, and no semi-killed or open heats have been directly cast.
