Weight reduction

Weight reduction is a critical design requirement across the range of military equipment. Magnesium.com Group develops solutions for application of magnesium in structural and system components to achieve weight reduction, lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, and, in case of vehicle applications, improve survivability.
Application of advanced light-weight magnesium alloys can lead to weight reduction of up to 30% without decrease in strength parameters. Magnesium is the most light-weight constructional metallic material available with a density between 1.35 and 1.85 g cm3. It has 1.5-2.0 times less density than aluminium alloys.

Magnesium alloys have suf ficiently high physical-mechanical and technological proper ties and are competitive in comparison to constructional plastics:

  1. High strength and stiffness including high resistance to fatigue stress;
  2. Absence of “aging” effect;
  3. High mechanical properties at low and elevated temperatures;
  4. Stability of sizes and forms over time;
  1. Good capacity for impact energy absorption;
  2. High damping properties;
  3. 100 % recycling is possible.

Moderate cost and metallic character (with respect to manufacturing, repair and maintenance actions as compared to composites) make magnesium a potential candidate material for weight reduction.
