Paper Title:
EN AC-46500 Injected by Semi-Solid Rheocasting
  Abstract

EN AC-46500 aluminium components are formed by Semi-Solid Rheocasting (SSR) in an industrial plant using a 700 tons high pressure machine. The dies wear was designed by the PLCO model of the ProCast simulation software. The components have had a good structural integrity and the mechanical properties after T6 treatment have been equivalent to that obtained by the same alloy by die cast. The present work describes the SSR forming process, the resulting microstructure as well as the optimization of the ageing heat treatment by hardness evolution. The results of the tensile tests make these clear.
