Paper Title:
Influence of Reheating Profile on Microstructural Evolution of 2024 Al Wrought Alloy for Thixoextrusion
  Abstract

Thixoextrusion, one of the thixoforming processes, has advantages of high productivity, reduction of the extrusion pressure and cost saving because of the low energy consumption compared with the conventional extrusion processes. For the thixoextrusion, the low liquid fraction (fL<0.3) should be achieved and also the liquid fraction and average grain size should be uniform according to the reheating profile at the desired low liquid fraction. The main emphasis of this study is to investigate the feasibility of thixoextrusion for 2024 Al wrought alloy without additional pretreatment. The results show that the liquid fraction and average grain size were almost uniform with respect to isothermal holding temperature and time. It was very useful for thixoextrusion in terms of process control such as billet temperature control and actual extrusion time.
