Summary

Accurate measurements of material properties have been performed for the MgAl6Mn (AM60)- as well as for the AlMg5Si2Mn die casting alloy. These two materials are of interest for steering wheel production. The named alloys allow for sufficient ductility and strength to meet the complete range of service conditions in the as casted state. Besides, these alloys can be processed efficiently in the die casting process.
