Continuous casting of non-ferrous metals has been practised for well over 100 years. It has many advantages over static ingot and book mould casting, the most important being improved yield, reduced energy consumption and reduction of manpower, with a consequent reduction in cost. This book shows how the prrocess can be used in an engineering environment for casting a wide range of copper based alloys and precious metals, including gold and silver, and selected nickel alloys.

This book details everything needed to both apply and understand the forging of aluminum bronzes, from crystal phases to quenching temperatures, and is the most useful and comprehensive resource on the subject I have ever found. The information is focused on Aluminum bronzes, but the concepts and techniques have application across the the entire field of metallurgy.
