In order to improve the comprehensive properties of casting aluminum, and to fulfill the requirements of forming thin wall fins for communication products, mechanical stirring was employed to prepare the semi-solid aluminum alloy AlSi8. communication products were produced by the semi-solid die casting process. The microstructure and mechanical and thermal properties were studied. The test results show that the microstructure of semi-solid die-casting samples changes from dendrite to globular microstructure, and the average tensile strength, elongation and thermal conductivity are 220MPa, 7% and 170 W/(m*K), respectively, which is significantly higher than that of the common die-casting samples. It was proved that the semi-solid die casting technology can be used in actual production and improve the products quality.
Key words: semi-solid die casting AlSi8 / microstructure / thermal property
