Paper Title:
Sub Liquidus Casting Technology for the Production of High Integrity Component
  Abstract

This work is a contribution to improve the knowledge of components behavior produced by semi-solid processes particularly the Sub-Liquidus-Casting process. Die design was supported by using the Procast simulation program. The effect of the different variables of the process in structural integrity of the product has been described and analyzed. The components were produced using A356 alloy formed on a pilot plant with a 400 Ton THT press. The components study was made by RX, metallographic analysis and mechanical tests. The effects of T5 and T6 heat treatments were also studied.
