Summary

In Germany, there are still problems in acquiring magnesium sheet of deep drawing quality, because of inconstancy in sheet thickness and relatively low surface quality properties. For this reason, a series of experiments is carried out to determine the deep drawing behaviour and the maximum drawing ratio at room temperature of three types of hot rolled AZ 31 sheet of 1.5 mm thickness, which are delivered by three different suppliers. The wrought alloy AZ 31 is selected for the tests because it promises reasonable ductility at room temperature.
