Paper Title:
Effect of Partial Remelting Procedure on the Microstructural Evolution of 7075 Al Wrought Alloy for Thixoextrusion
  Abstract

The feasibility study for thixoextrusion of 7075 Al wrought alloys was carried out with respect to reheating profile, isothermal holding temperature and time during the partial remelting through simple partial remelting. The reheating rates were 40/min and 60/min. The isothermal holding temperatures were controlled at 609, 622, 628 and 632 for 0, 2, 5, 10 and 30 min. The interesting point of this study was that the thixotropic structures of 7075 Al wrought alloy without additional pretreatment could be obtained through simple partial remelting. The average grain size was significantly smaller in the quickly heated specimen. The liquid fraction was increased with increasing isothermal holding temperature and time while the average grain size was inversely proportional to isothermal holding temperature and time. However, there was no big change of liquid fraction and average grain size with respect to isothermal holding time. The important fact that the liquid fraction and average grain size were almost uniform after 5 min is considered very useful for thixoextrusion in terms of actual extrusion time.
