The experimental work aimed to obtaining the aluminum alloy contact lines for trams or light rail. For this purpose was elaborated AlMgSi0.5 Aluminum alloy was elaborated and semi-continuous casted into rods of f 175 x 6000 mm, and then homogenized (520° C / for 16 hours) for the continuous extrusion process. A chamber extrusion die was designed and executed. After continuous extrusion forming, the obtained contact wire has been heat treated (quenching and artificial aging at 155 °C for 14 hours, air cooling). The product was microstructurally analyzed and mechanically tested (Tensile strength, Rm, Elongation, A, Brinell Hardness , HB and tensile forces in the contact wire, F. Results have shown that, although the minimum tensile strength is less than 200 MPa (Rm = 163-248 MPa), the value of total tensile forces F = 4250-6450 kilogram-force (kgf) in AlMgSi0.5 contact wire is superior to the copper wire, (F=3500Kgf according with PN-64/E-90090 standardization and Romanian standard STAS 686-71).
