Selected Aspects of Semisolid Forming Magnesium Alloys


Article Preview

The conventional and novel routes of injection molding magnesium alloys are described, including thixo- and rheomolding, semisolid extrusion molding, near-liquidus molding, composite molding and alloy generation by mixing thixotropic slurries. For each technique the basic concepts along with their experimental verifications are explained. The examples show the universal nature of the injection molding and its capability of implementing a variety of modern processing methods.
