Magnesium die casting is a manufacturing process similar to aluminum die casting, but it involves the use of magnesium alloy instead of aluminum. It is a method for producing high-precision and lightweight metal parts and components made from magnesium.

The process for magnesium die casting is quite similar to aluminum die casting and includes the following key steps:

  1. Mold Design: Engineers design a mold (die) typically made of steel in the shape of the desired magnesium part.
  2. Melting and Injection: Magnesium alloy is melted in a furnace and then injected into the die cavity under high pressure, using a die-casting machine. The high pressure ensures that the molten magnesium fills the mold completely and accurately.
  3. Cooling: The magnesium rapidly cools and solidifies within the mold.
  4. Ejection: Once the magnesium has solidified, the mold is opened, and the newly formed part is ejected from the die.
  5. Trimming and Finishing: Excess material, such as flash or sprues, is trimmed from the part. Additional finishing processes, such as machining or surface treatments, may be applied to meet the final specifications and appearance requirements.

Magnesium die casting is particularly suitable for applications where lightweight components with high strength and good thermal conductivity are needed. It is commonly used in the automotive industry for producing parts like transmission cases, engine components, and brackets. Additionally, it is employed in the aerospace, medical device, and electronics industries, where the unique properties of magnesium are beneficial for specific applications.
