New Review on Magnesium Welding Techniques

Magnesium alloys are widely utilised in metal manufacturing with applications as far ranging as structural, electronic and vehicle components. Employing a reliable method of joining these reactive metals both together and to alloys is therefore paramount for continued development.

Welding and joining of magnesium alloys from Woodhead Publishing provides a detailed review of both established and new techniques for magnesium alloys welding and their characteristics, limitations and applications.

The subject is examined from characteristics of magnesium alloy welded joints through to corrosion and protection principles and measures for improved resistance. Component design of welding materials represents part of the material synopsis provided.

Both the weldability of magnesium alloys and weldability to other metals is assessed as well as the preparation required for welding featuring surface treatment. Particular welding and joining technologies are explored in detail with particular chapters examining hybrid laser-arc welding, laser welding and resistance spot welding. Joining techniques are further discussed in the form of mechanical and adhesive bonding with practical applications highlighted.

With its distinguished editor and expert team of contributors Welding and joining of magnesium alloys is a comprehensive reference for producers of primary magnesium and those using magnesium alloys in the welding, automotive and other such industries, as well as academic researchers in metallurgy and materials science.
