Abstract: The application of Melt Conditioner (MC) for production of high-quality DC billets and slabs at semisolid state is examined. In this technique, liquid metal is continuously fed into a twin-screw melt conditioning device, where the liquid metal or semisolid slurry is subjected to high shear rate, and then delivered continuously into a DC caster. In this paper, the feasibility of MCDC of a wrought aluminium alloy in the semi solid state has been investigated and the possibility of DC casting by MC technique below the liquidus temperature as a novel idea was explored. This idea may challenge the conventional DC casting which is normally performed above liquidus temperature. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
