Magnesium is of interest for various practical applications, since it has a high specific strength and stiffness, and low density. Due to the combination of these properties, magnesium and its alloys are great constructional materials for auto- and aircraft industries since low density of materials is an important parameter for solving the problem of reducing the weight of products.
Research and development list
The designed and optimized magnetron technology produces high sensitive spin valves based on the giant magnetoresistive effect. The permissible technological deviations are found to use the technology in industry.
The compact flaw detection system is designed for automated quality control of longitudinal electric-welded pipes with diameter up to 102 mm throughout.
For magnetic control of tubing (pump compress pipes), a computerized machine UMD-104M is put into commercial operation.
Against previous models, the device has higher sensitivity (a lower threshold to measure the relative magnetic permeability is 1.001).
The technology works for magnesium and aluminum alloys; it provides a high ductility magnesium rod to be further high-degree deformed by drawing at room temperature.
The method allows forming a high ductility magnesium sheet to further obtain a thin foil by rolling at room temperature.
A square-chamfered sheet bar is invented to stamp circle products. The way allows significantly reducing non-ferrous and precious metal-alloy wastes, as well as the process duration and energy consumption.
Magnetic Hardness Tester combines a portable unique design inverter and a new software version for a SIMTEST-2 hardware system.
The proposed method allows achieving high degrees of deformation per a single shape-modifying process at ambient and low temperatures.
