Many products related to automobile and airplane have been manufactured by semi-solid process. There are many parameters in semi-solid process such as punch velocity, die temperature, and solid fraction of material. Among these parameters, solid fraction of material is one of the most important factors to determine quality of product. To obtain solid fraction of a certain semi-solid product is very necessary and useful for inspecting and analyzing the product. In this paper, image analysis program for microstructure by semi-solid forming process has been developed with the simple apparatus such as a personal computer and scanner, instead of expensive image analyzer.
