At present, the three major types of materials are steel, aluminum alloy and plastic. Among them, steel and iron account for about 62%, aluminum alloy and plastic are 8%-10%, while magnesium only accounts for 0.3%. However, with the solution of the problem of corrosion resistance of magnesium alloy in recent years, the proportion of magnesium occupation has increased significantly. So what are the advantages of magnesium alloy processing? What components can be processed by magnesium alloys?
First of all, magnesium can be used as the advantages of processing materials as follows. The density of magnesium itself is small, about one -third lighter than aluminum. The use of magnesium alloys is conducive to the lightweight of the car, the source of energy saving and reduction of carbon discharge. At the same time, the ratio of magnesium alloys is higher than that of aluminum alloy and steel, which is comparable to that of stiffness and aluminum alloy and steel. In addition, magnesium has excellent stagnation shock absorption performance, which can absorb vibration and noise. Therefore, it has been widely used in the auto seat system, car body architecture, transmission system, chassis and other components.
Magnesium alloy processing has good castability and size stability, and at the same time, it also has good processability to reduce production costs. At the same time, magnesium alloys can be recycled, low recycling costs, and high recycling rate.
In terms of current situation, there are more than 100 types of magnesium processing automobile parts. Xiaobian can be divided into car parts shells and automotive parts brackets according to the type.
① Magnesium alloys are processed into shell parts. The editor listed several commonly used car parts such as lamps, engine cases, cylinder heads, engine cases, gear box housing, and luggage rear cover.
② Magnesium alloy processing stenting accessories. Frequent body shell frames, dashboard skeletons, car mirror brackets, seat brackets, seat frames, etc. are all processed by magnesium alloy.
