Magnesium Die Casting
Magnesium alloys are the lightest among metal engineering structural materials, and their applications in the world have been increasing in recent years. In terms of physical properties, the density of pure magnesium is 1.74 g/cm3, which is 1/4 of steel, 1/3 of zinc alloy, and 2/3 of aluminum alloy. Low density, high specific stiffness, high specific strength, excellent shock absorption, stability, electromagnetic shielding, and green environmental protection are the characteristics of magnesium alloys. Every year, the use of magnesium alloys in the world has increased by 20% compared with the same period of the previous year, and the application has continued to increase. The use of magnesium alloys in my country is also increasing. It is precisely because of the wide use of high-performance magnesium alloys in machinery, automobiles, aerospace and other industries that the exploration and research of its casting technology has been put on the agenda.
In recent years, the application of magnesium alloy die-casting (hereinafter referred to as magnesium die-casting) in the automobile industry of developed countries such as Europe, the United States, and Japan has shown a sustained and rapid growth momentum. The average annual increase of more than 15%. At present, the main application field of magnesium is magnesium-aluminum alloy. If the development speed enters the 21st century, magnesium die-casting structural parts will become the most important application field of magnesium. The rapid growth of magnesium die-casting is mainly caused by the challenges faced by the automobile industry in developed countries in Europe and the United States, which require vehicles to be light in weight, low in fuel consumption, and environmentally friendly. The application of magnesium alloy parts can also improve the performance of automobiles, which is also one of the reasons why the automobile industry attaches great importance to the application of magnesium alloys. So, what is magnesium alloy die casting?
What Is Magnesium Die Casting – Define Of Magnesium Die Casting
Magnesium Die Casting is a method of using high pressure to extrude magnesium melt into the cavity at a low speed, solidification and slight plastic deformation to obtain castings.
The magnesium alloy castings obtained by this die-casting technology have high density, excellent mechanical properties and high dimensional accuracy, etc., and have a good effect on improving the defects such as porosity and pores of the castings.
In addition, the obtained castings can also be The heat treatment process is directly carried out to obtain finer texture grains.

The Advantages Of Magnesium Die Casting
Magnesium die-casting as a high-tech, whether in the automotive industry or in other fields, its main advantages are:
- Light weight;
- Product integration, 30 to 60 parts in the original design can be integrated into one-piece die-casting parts;
- Due to the high elongation of AM series magnesium alloys, it can increase the impact resistance of the components and the storage energy of the anti-collision air bag;
- Reduce processing costs and component assembly costs;
- Reduce vibration and noise;
- Reduce the inventory of parts;
- Improve the rigidity of auto parts;
- Improve the recovery rate of products;
- Increase flexibility in product design.
