Paper Title:
Laser Welding of SSM Cast A356 Aluminium Alloy Processed with CSIR-Rheo Technology
  Abstract

Samples of aluminium alloy A356 were manufactured by Semi Solid Metals HPDC technology, developed recently in CSIR-Pretoria. They were butt welded in as cast conditions using an Nd:YAG laser. The base metal and weld microstructure were presented. The effect of different heat treatments on microstructure and mechanical properties of the welds were investigated. It was found that the fine dendrite structure of the weld metal contributed for equalizing the mechanical properties of the joint.
