Homogenous and uniform microstructure
At Tasso we are highly aware of running a secure process with a minimum of fluctuations to ensure uniformity in the cast iron bars. The most significant characteristic of Tasso continuous cast iron is its homogeneous, fine-grained, dense, as-cast microstructure which is cavity- and pore free. The consistency of TassoBar material stems from the continuous casting process. The casting process involves pulling the bars through a graphite die at the bottom of the holding crucible filled with molten iron. Slag and other impurities float to top of the crucible/holding unit, away from the opening of the die and will therefore never make it into the bars.
The fine-grained structure allows faster machining, wear resistance, extended tool life, and good mechanical properties of the material. These characteristics combined with various dimensions and shapes in round, square and rectangular is what make TassoBar continuous cast iron a high performing and economic materials, which creates value across a wide range of industries.
