Summary

Magnesium alloys, especially AZ91D have good specific strength and low weight as well as excellent castability, in particular a unique thin-wall capability. Warping in thin-walled parts is commonly found. The present paper treats the influence of the process parameters in hot chamber die casting of AZ91D on warping induced by residual stresses. Special attention will be given the influence of solidification on warping.
