User-friendly continuous casting copper rod lines are the result of combining three different processes: melting, casting, and rolling, which in the past were separate processes that may have even been located in different buildings. Although complex, the modern lines do provide a high level of automation that would normally enable a smooth transformation of the raw copper materials into bright coils of quality rod. This paper addresses hidden issues and variables which make CCR lines so tricky to operate and provides a few hints to achieve better results on a consistent and repeatable basis.
