    Semi-Solid Processing of Aluminum Alloys

    The advantageous aspects of semi-solid-state metal (SSM) processing were initially discovered by MIT researchers in the early 1970s. The two pertinent processes are rheocasting and thixocasting routes. The temperature of the melt is crucial in determining the optimum point between liquid- and solid-state. SSM processing is most efficient when done at a certain point within the […]
