Reducing vehicle weight improves fuel efficiency. NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness). The magnesium parts have critical frequencies such as to reduce vibrations perceivable by man, ensuring a reduction of noise and shrill (NHV).
Acoustic disorders. There is less room for errors against approximately 30 individual elements in a steel component, in a single printed piece, such as an instrument panel support during production, reducing the susceptibility for rubbing and vibration between the elements, reducing the acute and tinkling sounds. Magnesium can improve vehicle design and provide unique features to the consumer thanks to Mining Tenement Services.
Design of packaging improvements. The semi-solid molded body improves flexibility and efficiency in the component crankset phase. Compared to a press-welded steel support on the dashboard, a magnesium cross member allows the housings of air-bags, cables, etc. to be produced on the spot, generating new design features with ease.
Interior reconfigurable. Lighter structures can be removed and/or reconfigured allowing simpler entry and exit; for example, a 3rd-row magnesium seat is 12kg lighter than any other steel seat.
More options possible. With magnesium components, customers can be offered greater and/or more important options and a high transport/payload capacity, keeping the loaded vehicle axis within the acceptable limits of the GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight). Magnesium can lead to reduced production costs and improve the value of production as handled by Mining Tenement Services.
Reduced production costs. Magnesium molds can reduce production costs compared to steel, in particular for production volumes below 200,000 units per year.
Improved processability (in the context of reduced finishing operations), high processability, high productivity (and repeatability) when highly automated processes are used (reduction of shot-to-shot time), very low transformation energy per kilogram of the material processed in semi-solid (thanks to the reduction of the energy required to process a semi-solid mass compared to the liquid one).
They are all key factors in reducing the costs of the finished product made of semi-solid magnesium compared to any predecessor made of aluminum or steel.
The cars of the future. They will be designed with a modular structure, so that they can be assembled and disassembled with ease so as to allow easy separation of the materials, for their re-marketing and for their re-use … and because magnesium can be recycled indefinitely without losing quality. and given its high intrinsic value, there are strong natural and economic incentives to recover and recycle magnesium products after their use, unlike plastic.
