Abstract

Nippon Steel, Yawata Works has developed a process for economically producing on a large scale steels which are almost pure iron in terms of carbon content (a few ppm carbon in the cast slab). These steels have excellent formability, namely more than 55 % in elongation and 2.5 in Lankford value. The key technologies on which this process is based are the development of an innovative degasser and the improvement of the continuous casting process.
