Cover Story (view full-size image): Spark plasma sintering (SPS) is employed for the first time to produce continuously fiber-reinforced metal matrix composites made of aluminum alloys. For this purpose, prepregs with aluminum alloys as a surface coating on carbon fiber textile structures were manufactured by robot-controlled, twin-arc wire spraying, and subsequently consolidated by SPS in the semi-solid temperature range of the alloys in graphite dies. Fully densified samples were achieved, which demonstrate improved mechanical properties and thereby the potential of the technology. View this paper
