Abstract

The paper describes the metallurgical, technological and heat treatment aspects of semi-solid casting process. Rheocasting SEED method using mechanical swirling for reaching proper structure in semisolid state was applied to alloy AlSi7Mg0.3. Values of selected mechanical properties reached by different heat treatment modes are presented. Mechanical properties were measured by indentation method. For observing structure, SEM microscopy was used.

Keywords: rheocasting, semi-solid, automatic ball indentation, Al-Si alloys, heat treatment
