Paper Title:
Weldability of SSM Rheo Processed Aluminum Alloy A356
  Abstract

CSIR-Rheo technology process which involves the preparation of metal slurry direct from liquid alloys by stirring and cooling was applied for treatment of Al-7%Si-0.35%Mg alloy, A356, to the Semi-Solid Metal state. Plates were cast in steel moulds with a 50 Ton High Pressure Die Casting machine. Heat treatments T4 and T6 were given to the samples. Butt laser welding was performed on the heat treated and as fabricated plates (F). Tensile properties, hardness profile, microstructure of the weld, heat affected zone and base metal were examined. Some comments on outcomes of the research are included.
