Now a day’s in the current domain, manufacturing industries are competing to reduce the cost and fuel consumption rates. Especially, in automobile and aerospace applications because of the improvement of lightweight metal advantages. Magnesium, aluminum and other few materials are considered as lightweight materials to use in required applications due to their inherent properties. Therefore, in this paper tried to characterize the advances of LM20 aluminum alloy rods by using the die-casting processes at various processing temperatures followed by room temperature, 373 K, and 473 K. The main aim is to study the effect of various processing temperature on microstructures and mechanical properties of LM20 alloy. Also, this paper reveals the stability of the microstructures of LM20 aluminum alloy though the processing temperature has been increased. The tensile strength, hardness of the LM20 aluminum alloy was decreased with increase in processing temperature. Similarly, the wear, and surface roughness tests were performed on the LM20 alloy rods to understand the effect at various processing temperature.
