The Concept and Technology of Alloy Formation During Semisolid Injection Molding 2005-01-0336

The application of semisolid technologies for processing of magnesium alloys is described. The benefits of using the semisolid state and processing capabilities of Husky's thixosystem are introduced. Our main attention is focused on exploring Thixomolding® for the generation of alloys by the mixing and partial melting of particulate precursors with different chemistries. Experiments with magnesium-based precursors revealed that the partition of alloying elements between the liquid matrix and remaining primary solid as well as the microstructure of created alloys were controlled by the processing temperature.
