Paper Title:
Forming of Biocompatible Materials in the Semi-Solid State
  Abstract

Semi-solid processing of materials provides advantages of both forging and casting. Experiments with high-melting and biocompatible alloys aiming at a “near-net-shape” production technology recently have been conducted. Advanced trials showed, that processing of such materials by means of semi-solid forming deliver a huge potential for feasible workpiece shapes and drastically reduces machining time and subsequent surface treatment efforts. In contrast to semi-solid forming of aluminium alloys at relatively low temperature levels any processing of high-melting point alloys in the semi-solid state is much more challenging due to higher forming temperature. Commonly used tool materials provoke high wear rates due to wetting, bonding and melting processes which finally result in a very short tool life time. Thus, more apt materials and composites for forming tools and dies which can withstand corrosion, wear, tear and extreme changes in temperatures have to be found. The development of new design concepts for long-living close-to-production tools based on such new materials will be a future goal.
