Components that are both strong and light are of great importance in many markets. 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. Mifa has put a lot of research into magnesium technology in order discover all the advantages when using it for profiles.
Magnesium extrusion profiles from /- 0.02mm
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;
- Sports bicycles.
