Summary

Within the automotive sector, energetic efforts are today being made to decrease vehicle weight in order to minimize the emission of combustion gases. In the light of this work it is natural that the use of light metals, and especially magnesium, has increased considerably during the last 5-10 years. Some applications in cars where cast magnesium components are used today include seat frames, instrument panels, transfer cases, wheels, steering wheels and various kinds of housings.
