Magnesium and its alloys.- Semisolid processing - origin of magnesium molding.- Basic and auxiliary hardware.- Thermal and corrosive aspects of processing molten magnesium.- Process theory and practice.- Feedstock selection.- Oxidation behaviour of the feedstock.- Melting behaviour of the feedstock.- Alloy transformations during molding.- Microstructure - property relationship in molded alloys.- Semisolid extrusion molding (SSEM).- Near-liquidus molding (NLM).- Alloy and composite generation in a semisolid state.- Molding creep-resistant alloys.
The objective of this book, being the first one on magnesium injection molding, is to treat both the scientific background and the technological aspects as they are understood at present. All aspects of material development, manufacturing and engineering are covered. The book provides a single source of information covering the interdisciplinary field of net shape forming of magnesium alloys. It reflects a unique blend of science and industrial practice.
Magnesium injection molding is used to manufacture millions of components from magnesium alloys for various applications, including computer, camera and consumer electronic housings; automotive parts; sporting goods; and household and office equipment.
This book presents both the scientific background and the technological aspects of magnesium injection molding. It covers all aspects of material development, manufacturing and engineering, including production, processing and application of magnesium and its alloys; research and practical implementation of magnesium injection molding and die casting; semisolid processing of alloys and composites; and design and building machinery, applicable for magnesium processing.
