Applications for magnesium alloys
include use in aircraft, missiles, machinery, tools, and material handling equipment, automobiles and high speed computer parts.
Our decision to develop the flexibility to manufacture the alloy in both of our European plants is a clear illustration of our commitment to the BMW engine program and Magnesium Elektron's position as a leading supplier of lightweight magnesium alloys
to the automotive industry.
Semisolid magnesium alloys
(as well as aluminum or zinc alloys) are heated and subjected to the shear of a processing screw, which makes them thixotropic and injection-moldable.
And as well as being lighter, magnesium alloys
have other benefits such as high shock and dent resistance, and a greater ability than aluminium to dampen noise and vibration.
are particularly suitable for EMI/RFI shielding, providing parts with superior levels of shielding that are stiffer, stronger, and fully recyclable than comparable plastic parts.
Built by HPM Corp, the first Thixomolder has a 400-ton die clamp and was designed to process approximately 270 lb (123 kg) of magnesium alloy
in one hour.
The concluding chapters cover applications of wrought magnesium alloys
in automotive and biomedical engineering.
is considered as a promising structure material for its low density and high specific strength .
Experiments in which several magnesium alloys
were poured into preheated molds determined the critical preheat temperature above which hot tearing does not occur.
18 March 2013 - German medical device maker Aap Implantate AG (ETR:AAQ) has entered into an agreement to create a 50/50 joint venture with Chinese magnesium alloys
specialist Dongguan Eontec Co Ltd (SHE:300328) for the development of biodegradable medical implants.
This collection of 30 invited, peer-reviewed papers presents the results of research on new and conventional casting magnesium alloys
, plastic deformation of Mg alloys, welding technologies, and magnesium matrix composites.
All these surface modification methods aim at improving the corrosion resistance of magnesium alloys
Papers from a March 2008 meeting are presented here, in sections on primary production, wrought alloys, thermodynamics and phase transformations, casting, advanced magnesium materials, alloy microstructures and properties, corrosion and surface finishing, and creep resistant magnesium alloys
Part two discusses ways of modelling superplastic forming processes whilst the final part of the book considers applications, including superplastic forming of titanium, aluminium and magnesium alloys
One of four volumes of proceedings, this one contains 132 papers selected from symposia on metal matrix and ceramic matrix composites, high temperature and ultra-high-temperature structural materials and surface coatings, high-entropy alloys and special high-temperature material, advanced magnesium alloys
and applications, superalloys, and powder metallurgy.
