Milling of magnesium

Extremely lightweight and stable components

Weight is of increasing significance in many assemblies and devices. The aim here is to make handling easier and also to improve the functionality. Magnesium is in demand here as a particularly lightweight and stable material. Its own low weight ensures that wearing parts such as swiveling axles are protected, thus increasing the service life of the product. Our high-performance CNC machining centers comply with strict fire safety regulations and are suitable for the production of high-tech magnesium components. But we also give aluminum, steel, non-ferrous metal and plastic precise geometries.

High strength with low weight

Compared with aluminum and other materials, magnesium components have clear advantages: they are one-third lighter, have higher strength and good vibration damping.

High strength with low weight

Safe machining on account of high standards

Machining lightweight materials such as magnesium requires special expertise and appropriate machine equipment. We are able to process these materials to tolerances of up to IT 6 while adhering to strict safety standards.

Challenge of magnesium chips
Only a few suppliers offer magnesium machining because it is associated with a high risk potential. During machining, magnesium chips can easily ignite due to flying sparks and subsequently burn at high temperatures. In order to be able to respond to this in the event of an emergency, we have appropriate extinguishing equipment with emergency circuits.
