The IBF operates a vertical twin-roll caster for the development of near-net-shape steel production. Besides the further development of the casting process itself, the investigations deal with possibilities of improving the material properties by inline-thermomechanical treatment of the as-cast strip by the use of two cooling zones and a hot rolling mill.
