Research and Development of Processing Technologies for Wrought Magnesium Alloys


Article Preview

This paper reviews the latest research and development status of processing technologies for wrought magnesium alloys including extrusion, forging, (twin-roll) thin strip casting, rolling, stamping, and superplastic forming. Existing problems and the development trends of these processing technologies are analyzed and discussed. Up to the present, the R&D on the processing technologies of wrought magnesium alloys has made great global progress. Nevertheless there is a long way to achieve large-scale industrialization and application of wrought magnesium alloys.
