New casting equipment designed to provide sheet ingot has gone into operation at the Longview, Washington, plant of Reynolds Metals Co. This includes a 90,000-lb. holding furnace and enlarged cast house and the vertical casting unit pictured. The new unit casts unalloyed ingot, extrusion billet and sheet ingot. The sheet ingot goes direct to Reynolds sheet plants eliminating need to recast unalloyed ingot at the plant.
