Each section of the caster has a different impact on the roll surface due to cooling, roll design, lubrication, cast product and function of the roll etc. Optimizing roll performance may result in different cladding materials for different sections.

Corewire always takes the approach of reducing long term and sustainable cost.

This may result in a slightly more expensive process to begin with, but result in an overall cost reduction due to increased life etc. The Total Cost of Ownership approach has now been firmly established with many customers. It is too simple to just go with the cheapest welding consumable…or the lowest bidder on rolls.
