MAGNESIUM DIE CASTING
From concept to completion, Pace Industries, a magnesium die casting company, works with customers to introduce the distinctive benefits of magnesium die casting. Whether it is prototypes, tooling or a long-term production relationship, we have the knowledge and expertise to deliver the advantages of magnesium die casting.
ADVANTAGES OF MAGNESIUM DIE CASTING
Magnesium is the lightest of all structural metals and is used extensively in applications demanding high performance characteristics.
DISTINGUISH PORTABLE AND DURABLE PRODUCTS
A perfect combination of light weight, rigidity and resistance to wear for diverse die cast part applications. Magnesium offers endless benefits and opportunities. Other advantages of magnesium include:
• Outstanding Dimensional Control
• Ultra-Thin Wall Design Options
• Excellent Vibration Dampening and Shock Absorption
• EMI/RFI Shielding
• Long Tooling Life to Lower Total Production Cost
• Abundant Finishing Options
• Withstands Higher Operating Temperatures
• Good Environmental Corrosion Resistance
Magnesium alloys are noted for low weight, high strength to weight ratio, exceptional damping capacity and ease of machining. Magnesium die casting temperatures are about the same as aluminum and both hot chamber and cold chamber die casting machines are used to produce castings.
AZ91D is the most commonly used magnesium die cast alloy that has an outstanding combination of mechanical properties, castability, and corrosion resistance.
This alloy has been specifically developed for corrosive environments, and has lower levels of nickel, iron, copper and silicon than AZ91D.
This magnesium alloy has excellent energy absorption characteristics along with excellent ductility. AM50B also has slightly higher strength that AM50A, but with otherwise similar properties
