Paper Title:
Processing of Wrought Magnesium Alloys to Produce Small Tubes for Biomedical Applications: Investigation about the Extrusion Process by a Laboratory Test Rig
  Abstract

Two commercial ZM21 and AZ31B alloys were extruded into small-size tubes at 410°C and strain rate 2.78·10-3 s-1 by a laboratory hot-extrusion system. The series of tubes, with outer diameter in the range of 8-4 mm and inner diameter from 6 to 3 mm were investigated considering microstructure and texture analysis. The tubes featured a homogeneous and refined equiaxed grain structure since dynamic recrystallization was clearly observed during the extrusion process. A typical ‘basal’ type texture was detected in extruded tubes by using EBSD technique.
