The side cover of agitator is a consumer electronic parts, which is made from magnesium die casting part. As magnesium parts allow thin of wall, light weight, and good corrosion resistant. This why magnesium die casting parts are widely used in aerospace, automotive, electronics, military and computer.
As we know, magnesium is about 30% lighter than aluminum, it is one of the easiest metals to machine, is normally in silvery-white color, since magnesium has excellent flow characteristics. Therefore many designers prefer to use magnesium die casting part.
Magnesium alloys die casting is a quite popular metal die casting manufacturing process in the manufacturing industry. Even though magnesium die casting is done in different methods, but its goal is to produce high strengths and light weight casting parts. Normally magnesium alloy combines with the advantages of other metals like aluminum, zinc , copper, etc.
ADVANTAGES OF MAGNESIUM ALLOY DIE CASTING:
The best strength and stiffness of any commonly used structural metal.
The lightest of all structural metals
Excellent dimensional stability as well as high impact and dent resistance.
God conductivity, electrical, and thermal property
Cost-effective compared with many engineering materials
Good environmental corrosion resistance
Consistent and predictable shrink rates mean minimal distortion or casting stress
