Semisolid Sinter-Forging of Hyper-Eutectic Al-Si Alloy Using Rapid Resistance Heating

In casting of hyper-eutectic Al-Si alloys, primary Si grains often grow, which deteriorates mechanical properties of the castings. In this study, an attempt was made to obtain hyper-eutectic Al-Si alloy parts without coarse primary Si grains by taking another route of sinter-forging. The sinter-forging taken up here is semisolid one. In this sinter-forging, a green compact billet of hyper-eutectic Al-25mass% Si alloy powder is rapidly resistance-heated into a semisolid state to promote the sintering and then upset-forged into a disc shape, and the performance was examined by paying special attention to the behavior of primary Si grains in the relation to the resistance heating condition.
