With the medical device industry and other key market sectors continuing to trend toward miniaturization—and related needs to incorporate smaller components that are stronger, thinner and lighter in weight—magnesium thixomolding and MAG technology have a massive manufacturing future. Magnesium is the lightest construction material currently available, with a density roughly 33% lower than that of aluminum. It also offers good machinability for complex shapes, excellent damping capacity and better resistance to high temperatures than plastic. Thanks to these versatile characteristics, magnesium that’s optimized and molded by a highly experienced provider can be an exceptionally efficient choice for sensor housings, battery components, displays, lighting and more.
