  1. 1. Semi-Solid Casting of Aluminium and Magnesium Alloys: Slurry Production and Rheocasting using the Rapid Slurry Forming Technology

    Author : Olof Granath; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Slurry; RheoMetal; Process parameter; Aluminium alloys; Semi-solid; Rheocasting; Rapid Slurry Forming; Magnesium alloys; Reheating;

    Abstract : Semi-solid casting was developed in the early 1970’s and involves the use of a partially solidified metal slurry. This method of casting has become a popular alternative for production of automobile components. READ MORE
