Magnesium Alloys for the Industry

Magnesium Alloys for the Industry THE application of magnesiumrich alloys to the numerous purposes of the aeroplane industry continuously increases as a result of the important improvements effected in the production of pure magnesium and in the manufacture and treatment of magnesiumrich alloys. Their low specific weight of 18 makes these magnesium alloys the lightest metallic constructional materials in existence and their various working treatments, including casting, pressing, rolling and machining permitting exceptionally high cutting speeds, are considerably cheaper than those of the heavy metals. Numerous English firms such as the Birmingham Aluminium Casting Co., Ltd., Smethwick, Birmingham Magnesium Castings and Products, Ltd., Buckingham Sterling Metals, Ltd., Coventry Smith's Stamping Works, Coventry Ltd., etc. manufacture machined parts of many descriptions for the aeronautical industry. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE application of magnesiumrich alloys to the numerous purposes of the aeroplane industry continuously increases as a result of the important improvements effected in the production of pure magnesium and in the manufacture and treatment of magnesiumrich alloys. Their low specific weight of 18 makes these magnesium alloys the lightest metallic constructional materials in existence and their various working treatments, including casting, pressing, rolling and machining permitting exceptionally high cutting speeds, are considerably cheaper than those of the heavy metals. Numerous English firms such as the Birmingham Aluminium Casting Co., Ltd., Smethwick, Birmingham Magnesium Castings and Products, Ltd., Buckingham Sterling Metals, Ltd., Coventry Smith's Stamping Works, Coventry Ltd., etc. manufacture machined parts of many descriptions for the aeronautical industry.
