Abstract

Squeeze casting is a recently commercialised casting process in which metal is solidified under the direct action of pressure sufficient to prevent the appearance of either gas porosity or shrinkage porosity. The concept is believed to have originated in Russia and dates back over a hundred years. This article reviews aspects of recent progress in the development of the process, its design capabilities and applications. The relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties of some light alloys is also highlighted.
