In order to implement magnesium molding, highly sophisticated machines were designed and built, exploring the existing processing knowledge. Sharing most features with standard injection molding systems for plastics, they can easily be incorporated into injection molding facilities. The machine is a part of the integrated cell, which includes additionally, a high-speed robot for part removal and die-lubricant application, feedstock loading equipment, a part cooling conveyor and mist filtration, as well as mold lubricant mixing and distribution.
