Semisolid forming by the COMPASS method are tested on a Ti-6%Al alloy, and the effects of the forming pressure, temperature, pressure holding time and grain size of titanium powders on the density are discussed. The blended powders which are prepared by mixing both powders of titanium and aluminium are poured in a metal mold, and heated to approximately the melting point of aluminum. Thereafter, the forming pressure is loaded and held for the prescribed time. The green compacts are heat-treated for alloying at 1473K. Pores in the green compacts are not observed under all the forming condition. However, the pressure holding time has a considerable influence on the density of samples after the heat-treating. The micro-pores and intermetallic compound were observed on the alloyed sample for the short pressure holding time, but these faults gradually disappear as the pressure holding time increases.
