Machining Magnesium

Machining magnesium is only limited to the speed of the

tool which is doing the cutting. Machining magnesium will

save you time, cost, and will increase production compared

to aluminium, steel, titanium and any other metal.

Like other metals, magnesium must be machined by using

certain precautions. Once these precautions are understood

you can enjoy the benefits of machining magnesium.

Many misconceptions exist about the flammability of magnesium alloys and the fire hazards

associated with their machining and use in applications with elevated temperatures.
