Paper Title:
Quick Semi-Solid Slurry Making Method Using Metallic Cup
  Abstract

The needs for high-strength and light weight structural materials have increased in automotive and aerospace structure applications. The semi-solid processed light alloys inherently offer the opportunity to produce high integrity components for these requirements. Various processing methods exist for applying agitation to a molten metal during solidification to obtain metal slurries suitable for semi-solid metal processing. In this paper, a new technique (Cup-Cast method) to achieve semi-solid metal structure using agitation and direct spherical growth during solidification is reported. Cup-Cast method is the most quick and simple semi-solid processing route which semi-solid slurry would be prepared just by pouring molten metal into a metallic cup. In this study Cup-Cast method was introduced and effect of process parameters on micro-structural characterization of slurry prepared by this method was investigated.
