Summary

Magnesium alloys, due to their low densities, are particularly attractive for automotive industry for weight saving [1, 2]. Currently, most of magnesium components in automobile are produced by die-casting process, because the high productivity of die-casting process compensates the relatively high cost of magnesium metal. Magnesium alloys AZ91 and AM60 are the primary die-cast alloys for room temperature application, and constitute about 90% of all structural applications of magnesium, because they exhibit superior castability, good corrosion resistance and a good balance between strength and ducitility [3].
