UPCAST® is the leading supplier of upward continuous casting technology for a wide range of non-ferrous applications.
First in upcasting
The upward continuous casting method, better known as the UPCAST® system, was originally developed within the Finnish Outokumpu Group in the late ’60s. The outcome resulted from a synthesis of innovative thinking and long production experience.
Always green. Now greener.
UPCAST® technology in itself, has always been an environmentally friendly process. Just electricity, compressed air and a cooling water circulation are needed to keep the process running
Casting high-conductivity oxygen-free copper rod from scrap myths and reality
To preserve the properties of high conductivity oxygen free-copper rod, the most ductile of all copper grades, special care must be taken when it is produced either entirely from scrap or from a cathode/scrap combination. This presentation describes the effect of some melt pollutants on conductivity and drawability.
