July 4-7, 2024
NECC, Shanghai
Booth No.: 2F21

On July 5th, YIZUMI signs a cooperation agreement with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Hebei University of Technology respectively at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai to jointly push the development of Thixomolding technologies.

To breakthrough on materials with Hebei University of Technology

In the morning, YIZUMI and Hebei University of Technology have signed a strategic cooperation agreement at the YIZUMI booth on 2F21, indicating our close collaboration in the field of high-performance magnesium alloys and efficient molding technologies.

Because of their lightweight and high strength, high performance magnesium alloys have a wide range of industrial applications, including new energy vehicles, 3C electronics, and drones. Thixomolding technology, in particular, is increasingly emerging as a new trend in the manufacturing of magnesium alloy components due to its unique forming benefits.

However, the current market is relatively deficient in Thixomolding materials, and the shortcomings of existing materials such as Mg Al series (AZ91D, AM60B, AM50A, etc.) magnesium alloys in terms of strength, toughness, and corrosion resistance have become technological bottlenecks that limit their future application.

Owing to their extensive experience in magnesium alloy research and market demand, the advanced light alloys group at Hebei University of Technology and Jilin University has steadily increased their investment in Thixomolding development and achieved significant research results. They have employed blank composite deformation production technology, achieving continuous and controllable production of high-quality blank particles and laying a solid foundation for the future development and application of Thixomolding.

In this cooperation, YIZUMI will work with Hebei University of Technology to solve technological challenges in the magnesium alloy molding process and construct the YIZUMI North China Thixomolding Experiment Base. Based on our respective Thixomolding technical advantages, we will deepen our cooperation in equipment, molds, processes, and other aspects to drive the development of new materials and technologies.

To achieve new technical results with Shanghai Jiao Tong University

In the afternoon, YIZUMI has signed a cooperation agreement with Shanghai Jiao Tong University for the development and application of Thixomolding technologies.

Magnesium alloy, a lightweight and high-strength metal material, finds wide applications in aviation, automotive, electronics, and other industries. However, conventional Thixomolding technology is hard to completely eradicate casting defects such as porosity, cold flow, and oxide surface, limiting the future development and application of magnesium alloy products. To solve this technological bottleneck, YIZUMI collaborates with Shanghai Jiao Tong University to develop the Thixomolding technology.

YIZUMI, an industry leader in Thixomolding technologies with deep technological accumulation and market insights, believes that by combining the extensive research capabilities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Light Alloy Net Forming National Engineering Research Center, we will achieve new technical results in Thixomolding development and applications.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University concentrates on the development of high-strength magnesium alloy materials, and the innovation of molding technology, particularly in response to the problem that current technologies cannot be effectively applied to castings with significant wall thickness differences. It also puts forward and works hard on innovative solutions such as second intensification. With YIZUMI's expertise in equipment design and manufacturing, we will work closely to promote the development of new Thixomolding equipment with a second intensification function.

In this partnership, we reach a consensus on the future development trend of Thixomolding technology. In the future, we will deepen our cooperation in technological research, equipment innovation, market expansion, etc. to propel Thixomolding technology to become a driving force in the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry, ushering in a new era of lightweight material application.

We firmly believe that with the continuous efforts of YIZUMI, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Hebei University of Technology, Thixomolding technology will open up new development opportunities and usher in a new era for the use of lightweight materials.
