Summary

Due to their outstanding property profile Magnesium flat rolled products represent an attractive material for new ultralight constructions. This is especially valid for large thinwalled automobile components as well as for high performance machines or electronic equipment. The growing interest for Magnesium sheet results from continuous quality improvements and a better availability of semi-finished products. The technical and economical competitiveness is closely connected with further optimising the process chains of Magnesium wrought alloys.

As a young subsidiary of Salzgitter AG, Salzgitter Magnesium-Technologie GmbH therefore concentrates on the development, production, processing and trading of new, high quality Magnesium flat rolled products. The company offers a complete technology and material partnership ranging from product development to series applications. A new Magnesium rolling mill at Salzgitter already produces tailor made Magnesium sheet on an industrial scale.

The paper gives an overview of application potential and perspectives of Magnesium sheet and reports about present developments at Salzgitter Magnesium-Technologie GmbH.
