Paper Title:
Optimization of Heat Treatment Conditions of Magnesium Cast Alloys
  Abstract

In this paper there are presented results of the optimization of heat treatment conditions, which are temperature and heating time during solution heat treatment or ageing as well the cooling rate after solution treatment for MCMgAl12Zn1, MCMgAl9Zn1, MCMgAl6Zn1, MCMgAl3Zn1 cast magnesium alloys. A casting cycle of alloys has been carried out in an induction crucible furnace using a protective salt bath Flux 12 equipped with two ceramic filters at the melting temperature of 750±10°C, suitable for the manufactured material. The heat treatment involve the solution heat treatment and cooling in different cooling mediums as well water, air and furnace. The improvement of the manufacturing technique and chemical composition as well as of heat treatment and cooling methods leads to the development of a material designing process for the optimal physical and mechanical properties of a new developed alloy.
