Melt-Spinning a Commercial Aluminium Alloy

  • T C Willis (a1) and B Cantor (a1)

A commercial aluminium alloy (3004) has been melt-spun on both an aluminium and a copper substrate. The meltspinning conditions have been varied in order to determine the optimum spinning parameteis for the apparatus used. The resulting ribbon has been examined by optical microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and anodization to show differences in grain structure and second phase distribution between the as-received rolled sheet and the melt-spun ribbon. X-ray diffractometry has been used to obtain information about the different intermetallic phases present in the sheet and ribbon, and peak heights of X-ray diffractometer traces have also been used to indicate textures present in the ribbons spun on aluminium and copper substrates.
