Makes thixomolding a major contributor to automotive lightweighting
Under the dual promotion of energy saving and emission reduction and performance improvement, automotive lightweighting has become an inexorable trend in the industry. The automotive industry have put a lot of effort into long mileage, reducing pollutants, and minimizing carbon emissions. The use of lightweight materials, structural optimization design, and innovative manufacturing processes are the three basic methods of automobile lightweight, among which lightweight material application is one of the most effective methods of lightweight development. As the lightest engineered structural metal material, magnesium alloys are receiving increasing attention from the automotive industry.
