In this paper the work carried out at IRSID for near net shape casting of strip is presented. Two 'hot models' have been built in the pilot steel shop of Maizieres Laboratories in order to investigate the process technology and the product quality of direct cast steel strip in the 1 to 10 mm range. 200 mm wide strip was consistently produced from a 300 kg melting induction furnace, using both twin roll and a single roll techniques. Both processes are viable and very likely open the way to new casting processes which should mature industrially in the 1990's.
