Paper Title:
Aging Behavior of Al-Cu Alloys Produced by Melt Extrusion Process
  Abstract

Melt extrusion is a new fabrication process with the characteristics of both casting and extrusion. In this process, a metallic melt which is poured and solidified up to semisolid state in the container can be directly extruded through the die exit to form a product of bar shape without other intermediate processes. The aging behavior of Al-Cu alloys in the semisolid state was investigated. And the microstructure and mechanical properties of the melt extruded Al-Cu alloy bar were measured and its characteristics are compared with those of a hot extruded Al-Cu alloy bar. Al-Cu alloys were successfully extruded after squeezing out of liquid during melt extrusion with smaller force compared to the solid extrusion. Al-Cu alloys bar with the mean grain size of up to 200 μm was fabricated by melt extrusion process. And the mechanical properties of the melt extruded Al-Cu alloy bar were improved after the T6 treatment.
