Fiber Reinforced Light Metal Composites by Thixoforging of Thermally Sprayed Prepregs

Abstract:

Article Preview

New manufacturing methods for metal matrix composites (MMC) are developed. Thermally sprayed metal coatings on reinforcement-fabrics are used as preforms (prepregs) for an advanced thixoforging process. The semi-solid forming and simultaneous infiltration in short cycle times offer the possibility to realize complex near net-shape geometries and reduces fiber damage to a minimum.
