Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation on Thixocasting Process of Auto Box-Like
  Abstract

Semi-solid metal processing (thixoforming) is a potential forming technology, which can realize near-net-shape forming process with good quality in one forming step. In this study, semi-solid casting (thixocasting) was used to form the auto box-like. Based on Power Law Cut-Off (PLCO) model and finite element code Procast software, the thixocasting process was modeled and simulated. The impact of main process parameters such as initial billet temperature, ram speed as well as die temperature on the thixocasting process was studied. The results show that thixocasting process can be used in forming auto box-like.
