Abstract

Semisolid metal (SSM) processing, also known as semisolid metal casting, semisolid forming, or semisolid metal forging, is a special die casting process. This article discusses the origin and advantages of the SSM processing. It describes three major semisolid processing routes: thixocasting, rheocasting, and thixomolding.
