The paper deals with semi solid squeeze casting technology. Fluidity tests were designed for the selected technology. The shape of the test casting was designed in the shape of test bars with different thicknesses and also in the shape of a stepped casting. The thickness of the individual elements was chosen on the basis of a selected / preferred numbers R10 EN STN 17. As a result, the thickness of the elements was 2.0, 2.5, 3.15, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.3 mm. Designed fluidity tests were verified by using ProCast simulation software. The selected process parameters were: operating pressure 80 MPa, mold temperature 200 °C, piston speed 30 mm.s-1. The experimental material was an AlSi7Mg0.3 alloy with a different solid phase content. The initial solid amount were 50, 55 and 60 %. The effect of solidus and liquidus, temperature distribution and pressure was monitored during the evaluation of fluidity.
