Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19811434A1] The invention relates to a method for homogenizing a molten metal film, more particularly a steel film, by means of thin strip casting. According to the invention, the melt applied to a rotating strip is of a similar thickness to and possesses the same qualities wherever possible as the width of the strip. In order to homogenize the width of the strip, forces possessing a component perpendicular to the direction of conveyance of the strip are introduced, whereby homogenization of the profile of the molten metal film occurs.
