Extruded and Forging Magnesium
Magnesium alloy technology improves performance through high-strength, lightweight materials. Magnesium alloys are 33% less dense than aluminium – they can be used as a substitute material to increase performance even at elevated temperatures.
Luxfer MEL Technologies is able to provide highly customised engineering solutions to our markets and customers through a dedicated 2,750t hydraulic extrusion press. Our magnesium forging billet is derived from high integrity Direct Chill billet. Luxfer MEL Technologies forging billet has excellent formability characteristics which reduces rejects and lowers processing costs for operators.
