A melt overflow apparatus for controlling various elements in response to incremental changes in parameters which affect the linear density of a continuous metal fiber mat or metal strip being produced is described. The net width of fibers being cast against a rotating, cylindrical casting wheel is measured by an infrared detector. A similar infrared detector is used to measure the net width of a metal strip being formed against a casting wheel. The weight of a portion of the strip or fiber mat is also measured. The weight and net width values are relaye...
In a melt overflow casting apparatus having a rotatably driven casting wheel, the side of which molten metal is cast against and solidified as short, thin fibers, the casting wheel carrying the solidified metal fibers and projecting them onto a conveyor forming a continuous fiber mat, for transporting the fiber mat and a height control means for controlling the height of the top surface of a pool of molten metal, the improvement comprising: (a) a sensing means for measuring the net width across the casting wheel of the cast metal fibers and; (b) a contro...
