Improved Formability and Deep Drawing of Cross-Rolled Magnesium Alloy Sheets at Elevated Temperatures
The extruded sheets were prepared at the temperature between 350ıand 400ı, and the magnesium alloy sheet was manufactured by a new method, cross rolling, in which the rolling direction was changed in each pass. At the time, deep drawing of magnesium alloy sheet was investigated at elevated temperatures. The results show that the sheet has refined-grain by cross-rolling after it was annealed at 250ı, and the formability is significantly improved at lower temperatures, which is superior to the extruded sheet and the one-way rolled sheet. Deep drawing of magnesium alloy was performed successfully, and cylindrical cup of limited drawing ratio (LDR) 2.6 and 35 mm deep rectangular box (65ı50) was achieved at the lower temperature of 170ı. The different types of fracture were analyzed and reasonable parameters were determined.
