Magnesium is the future! Especially now that Mifa has the in-house expertise to produce a wide range of magnesium components that are resistant to corrosion. This is a real breakthrough in a world where every gram counts, because magnesium is the lightest of all metals. Experience magnesium extrusion. Looking for magnesium components?
With our magnesium extrusion we even won the Materialica Design + Technology Gold Award with our technology!
The Mifa standard when it comes to magnesium extrusion
The level of precision we achieve during the aluminium and magnesium extrusion process means unprecedented possibilities and gives designers enormous freedom in design, without the restrictions of standard specifications. As a result of this it is possible to produce the best magnesium products. Out products are of the best quality, and exceed the standard with regard to straightness, torsion, concentricity, parallelism, surface roughness and fit. Interested?

Are you looking for lighter products and/or components for your machine?
Magnesium is a lightweight metal with very good material properties. It is 35% lighter than aluminium and 80% lighter than steel. The magnesium used by Mifa is also at least 20% stronger than the conventional aluminium used in construction, related to the specific mass of the materials.

A breakthrough recently took place in the field of magnesium extrusion following years of extensive R&D. Ultimately, it proved possible to extrude magnesium profiles with very tight dimension tolerances upwards of approx. 0.02 mm. Magnesium is therefore now also available as an extrusion material for various markets in which weight in combination with strength is of great importance. The freedom of design is just as great as with aluminium. Magnesium profiles can be used in areas including:
- • Lightweight mobility products;
- • The automotive, defence, and aerospace sectors;
- • Machinery
- • Sports bicycles.
