Summary

Lightweight design is becoming increasingly important in such areas as the automobile industry due to the necessity of keeping resource utilization to a minimum while reducing environmental pollution. But, this not only includes taking advantage of the benefits of condition and structural lightweight design. Lightweight materials are becoming increasingly important in high-strength and super high strength steels, aluminum and magnesium sheet metal. Unfortunately, this proven potential for weight-saving is frequently linked to limited deformation capacity as compared with conventional materials. This is the reason why tempered deformation has become increasingly important in the last few years. Preliminary tests (/1/…/2/) have indicated an increase in deformation capacity of 250% to 350% coupled with a reduction in the deformation force required of 40% – 50% with magnesium wrought alloys in a temperature ranging from 220° to 250 °C (/3/…/5/).
