Paper Title:
Press Forging of Thin-Walled AZ31 Magnesium-Alloy Components
  Abstract

The press forging of AZ31 magnesium-alloy sheets for producing thin-walled structural components used in the electronics industry was examined by both the finite element analysis and the experimental approach in the present study. The experimental results obtained from the compression tests and ring compression tests were employed in the finite element simulations to investigate the effects of process parameters, such as forming temperature, friction condition, embossment location, and sheet thickness on the formation of embossments in a press forging process. The finite element simulation results reveal that a cost-effective press forging process of AZ31 magnesium-alloy requires an optimum combination of the above parameters. The detailed examination of the effects of the process parameters on the formation of embossments made in the present study could provide a design guideline for a press forging process of AZ31 magnesium-alloy sheets.
