Grant Description

Summary and Description of the grant

This project is to exploit the commercial application of the novel Twin Screw Rheo-Extrusion (TSRE) technology and facilitate the related technology transfer to industry. The TSRE process takes advantage of the non-dendritc microstructure and dynamic shear resistance of semisolid-metal slurries and produces simple metal profiles directly from the melt, with designed microstructure, uniform chemistry and excellent properties. This offers a step change for metal production, presenting a major opportunity for the UK industry to save costs and energy and enhance efficiency. The project's core objective is to successfully demonstrate the TSRE process for producing aluminium welding rods/wires at an industrial-scale.
