High-quality aluminum and magnesium alloy ingot semi-continuous casting system Home - Pilot Base - High-quality aluminum and magnesium alloy ingot semi-continuous casting system

Semi-continuous Casting System of Aluminum and Magnesium Alloy

With the support of the research teams in Luoyang Institute of Special Materials Research, this Semi-continuous casting system of aluminum and magnesium alloy line aims to produce the high-performance aluminum and magnesium alloy materials to satisfy the materials need in the field of aerospace.

In terms of technology, the pilot base has introduced The Linde Group the low temperature pure oxygen combustion technology which can save energy and reduce emission. And together with the shallow pool technology, on-line degassing filtration, PLC + intelligent temperature control instrument, HMI real-time operation, magnesium alloy protection atmosphere and undercurrent technology, the pilot base can realize low energy consumption, low emissions and high quality.

The main production equipment includes 10 tons aluminum alloy furnace, 1.2/2 tons magnesium alloy furnace, 10 tons outer guide type hydraulic casting machine, high speed band sawing machine and 15 tons homogenizing annealing furnace.


The high-performance aluminum and magnesium alloy semi-continuous casting project will focus on the production of the 2 series, 5 series, 7 series high performance aluminum alloy and rare earth magnesium alloy semi-continuous ingots that used in the field of aerospace and military.
