Paper Title:
The MSMT Process for Semi-Solid Slurry Production
  Abstract

A new slurry making method for rheocasting termed “Melt Spreading and Mixing Technique” (MSMT), based on forced uniform solidification theory, has been proposed, by which the bulk metal is dispersed into thin liquid film that is cooled rapidly and uniformly to allow copious nucleation. With a model alloy Al-wt%6.5Si to conduct a series of experiments, feasibility of this method and influence of process parameters upon slurry microstructure were studied. The results show that semisolid slurry for mass production with uniformly fine nondendritic microstructures can be obtained consistently and continuously by optimizing process parameters.
