Article Preview

The software AnyCasting was used to simulate the thixotropic die-casting process of semi-solid ZL 201 alloy slurry to form the parts of particular shape, especially how the size of the in-gate of die and injection speed affect the process. The results showed that the die cavity can be filled well with the semi-solid slurry in form of laminar flow under conditions that the temperature of the semi-solid slurry is 640±5°C and that of die 200~240°C, thickness of the in-gate is 11mm and, more important, the injection speed is changed from 0.1 m/s to 1.0m/s when 60% of die cavity has been filled.
