Summary

Investigations focused on alloys AZ 31 and AZ 61. In the first part of the article, the hot and cold forming behavior is examined for the example of alloy AZ 61 by torsion and upsetting tests under technologically relevant conditions. The second part is dedicated to the rolling capacity of the two alloys, which is determined by rolling experiments, the effects of rolling on the microstructure and mechanical properties, and the technological limits.
