The difference in the microstructure between the skin and core region of the die-cast magnesium alloy … Washington, DC: The National Academies Press  ASM International. (pp. Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mould cavity.The mould cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies which have been machined into shape and work similarly to an injection mould during the process. The magnesium Azxx alloy series is the most widely used series based on magnesium. In Trends in Usage of Magnesium.  Trang, T. T. T. et al. The benefits of using magnesium in today's automobiles are striking. We are very experienced in magnesium casting including magnesium die casting. It is lighter than aluminium, providing components and functional integration, as well as high dimensional stability, improved fit and surface finish. (2018) Designing a magnesium alloy with high strength and high formability, Nature Communications 9, 2522  National Research Council. Their main disadvantage is low maximum working temperature (about 120°C for Mg-Al alloys). AOP's Magnesium die casting alloys have good corrosion resistance and casting properties and mechanical properties. If your project requires a lightweight die casting component with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, magnesium die casting is the logical option. Introduction. (1975) Properties of Magnesium and Magnesium Alloys. These alloys have moderate strength, good ductility and toughness. The following sections will discuss in detail about magnesium AZ91A-F die cast alloy. A new type of die-cast magnesium alloy MRI 230D was developed to overcome the high-temperature limitation (Aghion et al., 2009). This led to the development of Mg-Al-RE or Mg-RE-Zr alloys, which can work up to 250°C. Magnesium alloys are widely used in aerospace and automotive industry due to their low density, good mechanical properties, and good castability. 37-42). The high cycle fatigue properties of the die-cast magnesium alloy AZ91D containing 1% mischmetal (mass fraction) at a fatigue ratio of 0.1 were investigated. They can be cast, formed, and forged. CWM die casts magnesium alloy AZ91D, a high-purity alloy which offers good corrosion resistance for your magnesium parts, as well as the following benefits: Longer tool life; Easiest alloy to machine Magnesium alloy castings can be produced by nearly all of the conventional casting methods, namely, sand, permanent, and semi permanent mold and shell, investment, and die-casting.
