Abstract: A heat transfer model was built to predict the temperature evolution of semi-solid aluminum billets produced with the SEED process. An inverse technique was used to characterize the heat transfer coefficient at the interface between the crucible and the semi-solid billet. The effect of several process parameters on the heat transfer coefficient was investigated with a design of experiments and the coefficient was inserted in a computer model. Numerical simulations were carried out and validated with experimental results.

Abstract: In this study, there are three machining parameters consist of spindle speed, feed rate and depth of cut which were conducted through full factorial with four center points to determine the effect of machining parameters on the surface roughness and verify whether there is curvature in the model for CNC face milling process in an automotive components manufacturer in Thailand. The workpieces used semi-solid die casted ADC12 aluminum alloy crankcase housing which they were performed by the ARES SEIKI model R5630 3-axis CNC vertical machining center and face milling cutter with diameter of 63 millimeters. The surface roughness of face-milled was measured by the surface roughness tester. It was found that the greatest main effect influence to surface roughness was spindle speed, followed by feed rate and depth of cut at significance level of 0.05.
