Magnesium Alloy Machining Parts

Magnesium die casting alloys’ close-packed hexagonal structure makes them well-suited for the machining process.

Magnesium Alloy Machining Parts
Good results are obtained when magnesium alloys are machined with tools designed for machining aluminum. But because of the low resistance to cutting and the relatively low heat capacity of magnesium, we use tools with smooth faces, sharp cutting edges, large relief angles, small rake angles, few blades (milling tools), and a geometry that ensures good chip flow during machining
     Traditionally, magnesium alloys were machined without using cutting fluids. However, we have found using cutting fluids reduces fire risk, eliminates material build-up on the tool, removes chips easily, and, most importantly, prolongs the life of the tool
