Preparation Technology on Semi-Solid of ZL101
The semi-solid microstructure of ZL101 alloy was fabricated by technology of vibrating inclined cast. The effections of length of slope and vibration voltage on microstructure were also investigated. The experimental results showed that two parameters played an important role on the microstructure of ZL101 alloy. The homogeneous, small and rounded sphere-like semi-solid equiaxed crystals were obtained when the ZL101 alloy was cast in water-cooled copper mold with 25cm slope length at 640 °C and 60v vibration voltage, the average grain diameter and shape factor of which was 26.5um and 0.8, respectively.
