High-speed tools or carbide tipped tools are preferred for the machining of magnesium. It is important to keep the cutting tool sharp to avoid to much heat. The experience with diamond tools are excellent but the costs are relatively high. It is necessary to store machined products under dry conditions and when there is a chance of condensation, extra protection is needed.

As the premier magnesium machining supplier,PTJ Prototype knows the many benefits behind magnesium machined parts.

Magnesium Machining Benefits

Magnesium has very good machining abilities like sawing, punching, drilling, milling, turning compared to other metals. The specific cutting power is low and the surface is excellent and the chips are short.
Magnesium is the fastest machining metal and it has a high thermal conductivity.
