3D Characterization of AlFeSi Intermetallics in a 6xxx Series Al Alloy
November 06, 2017
We analyzed the volume percentage of intermetallic phase (AlFeSi) content in an aluminum alloy using automated 3D metallography. The presence of intermetallic phases can impair the deformability of extrudable 6xxx series alloys. The Robo-Met.3D® system revealed the desired features in the sample and post processing segmentation was used to quantify the intermetallic phase distribution.
