Research on the Homogenization of ZK60 Magnesium Alloy Ingot
The influence of various homogenizing parameters on the microstructure of ZK60 magnesium alloy ingot has been investigated. By means of metalography observation and micro-hardness measurement, the effect of annealing temperature and time on the homogenization processes were studied, which indicated that the homogenized microstructure was more sensitive to annealing temperature than to annealing time. An optimized homogenizing process 470°Cx14h was suggested to improve the deformability of ZK60 alloy.
