CNC Machining Magnesium Alloy Parts
Magnesium is one of the top 5 lightest metal. As a kind of light metal material, magnesium performs very good in terms of strength, rigidity, cutting and machinability. Besides, it has good properties in electromagnetic shielding and anti-radiation. CNC machining magnesium alloy parts are 100% recyclable.
The production of CNC machining magnesium alloy parts can work with high cutting speed and depth. However, it is easy to trigger combustion during the process, and this is a key issue that need to be taken into consideration during the cutting of magnesium alloy. Therefore, cutting fluid, also called coolant, is a must for cutting to cool the workpiece and reduce the possibility of distortion and combustion. Moreover, cutting fluid can also prolong the lifespan of cutter.
Special cutting fluid is necessary for producing CNC machining magnesium alloy parts. Because magnesium alloy will oxidize with common cutting fluid, the stability of the fluid will be broken and it will form stratification. And this special cutting fluid can prevent the oxidation of magnesium ion with special additives.
