liqiud metal is poured into the pot

The metal is cooled in the pot until the right temperature is reached

The metal is poured into the casting box.

The casting box's back strip is raised about 2mm.
This box is pushed over the casting bench.

Behind the casting box you can see the metal, which is still mostly liquid.

The beginning of the sheet is too thick and is therefore cut off.

Once the metal is cold, the sheet gets losened off the table and taken off.
