Additive Manufacturing of Magnesium Alloys
Magnesium (Mg) is one of the lightest structural metal materials, 33 % lighter than Aluminium. Due to its low density and high strength, its alloys are widely used in the automobile industry, electronics, aerospace, and other important fields. Additionally, biocompatible Mg alloys have emerged as a promising degradable biomaterial for use in orthopaedics and cardiology. The primary advantage of Mg is that long term complications can be minimized or avoided because the device completely degrades inside the human body, thus a second removal surgery is not necessary. At present, several degradable Mg-based orthopaedic devices are certified within the European Union. Manufacturing of those devices is commonly performed by conventional processing, such as casting, extruding, machining, milling and post-processing.
