Paper Title:
Effect of Electromagnetic Field on Horizontal Direct Chill Casting of 7075 Aluminum Alloy
  Abstract

The influence of different electromagnetic fields on the horizontal direct chill (HDC) casting of aluminum alloy is studied. 7075 aluminum alloy with 100-mm in diameter is produced by HDC casting process; single electromagnetic field located before or around the mold and an out-phase electromagnetic field (OPEMF) are applied in the HDC casting process. The effect of different electromagnetic fields on the HDC casting solidification behavior and as-cast structure is investigated. The electromagnetic field can effectively make uniform thermal distribution in the molten pool and refine the as-cast structure. The OPEMF is more efficient than the single electromagnetic field in improving the as-cast structure of HDC cast ingots.
