Paper Title:
A Control of Microstructure of A356 Alloy by Sequential Semi-Solid Process
  Abstract

The study on rheocasting has been conducted based on examination for destruction, growth, ripening of solid state in accordance with various changes in cooling. And flow characteristics of slurry for high liquid range rather than practical use has gotten attention. However, the characteristics of existing rheocasting and thixocasting are better mechanical property than competing process die casting but it’s competitiveness as automotive or electric electronic parts which cost of product is important. And productivity also has been decreased. Because die-casting techniques has been advanced such as vacuum, mold auto temperature control etc. Most of the work reported at this conference concerned the semi-solid processing of low melting point alloys, and in particular light alloys of aluminum and magnesium. Therefore, the aim of this study is to devise the original strength of semi-solid process by sequential semi-solid process. The size of primary solid particle and the degree of sphericity as a function of the variation in cooling rate, stirring speed, and holding time were observed. By applying electromagnetic stirring, primary solid particles became finer and rounder relative to as-cast sample. With this background, this research conducted electromagnetic stirring through slurry deliverance of sequential process through A356 alloy electromagnetic stirring pump (30Hz, 130A) with Sequential Semi-Solid Process device to assess the microstructures, primary particle size, degree of sphericity change in A356 alloy in accordance of solid-fraction, stirring speed, and stirring maintenance time.
