Effects of Homogenization on the Formability of ZM21 Alloy

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effects of homogenization on the formability for hot deformation of ZM21 wrought magnesium alloys was investigated. The alloys were produced by semi-continuous casting. Experiments including homogenizing annealing, micro-hardness testing and hot compress testing on Gleeble 1500D thermal simulator were carried out. The suggested homogenization parameters from the experimental results for ZM21 alloy is 400C×12h.
