Study on Microstructures and Mechanical Properties of Rheo-Die Casting Semi-Solid A356 Aluminum Alloy
In this paper, with a newly self-developed rotating barrel rheomoulding machine(RBRM), microstructures and mechanical properties of rheo-die casting A356 alloy were studied. In order to clearly show the characteristic of rheo-die casting, liquid die casting and semi-solid casting were done too. The experimental results showed that microstructures of rheo-die casting were composed of solid grains, which were finer and rounder, and had fewer pores. In the three technologies, integrated mechanical properties of semi-solid rheo-die casting were the best.
