Let’s talk about 13 tips about magnesium alloy processing. We hope to help you and reduce a lot of mistakes when processing magnesium alloys.

Pay attention to the following points when processing magnesium alloy:

(1) Keep the knives sharp, the front and rear corners are of appropriate size, and avoid using dull, crimped or chipped knives;

(2) Adopt strong cutting with large feed rate to form thick chips and avoid small feed rate;

(3) When the feed amount is small, use mineral oil cooling to reduce heat generation

(4) At the end of cutting, the tool should be withdrawn immediately, otherwise the workpiece will continue to rotate and form small chips that may catch fire;

(5) Try not to use cutting fluid, especially water-soluble cutting fluid;

(6) In high-speed cutting situations where fine chips are produced, compressed air or carbon dioxide can be blown;

(7) The machine tool near the processing machine should be kept dry;

(8) Clean the chips frequently and store them in steel drums with lids;

(9) Sand or other hard objects adhered to the casting should be removed before machining;

(10) Avoid sparks caused by cutting tools hitting steel inserts;

(11) Smoke and fire are not allowed to approach the processing area;

(12) It is not allowed to accumulate swarf on the machine tool or work clothes. The dust and swarf should be removed frequently and stored in a labeled flame-retardant container with a lid;

(13) Ensure that there are sufficient fire extinguishing facilities where the operator can reach.
