The objective of this book, being the first one on magnesium injection molding, is to treat both the scientific background and the technological aspects as they are understood at present. All aspects of material development, manufacturing and engineering are covered. The book provides a single source of information covering the interdisciplinary field of net shape forming of magnesium alloys. It reflects a unique blend of science and industrial practice.There are, however, examples of higher volume with GM full size vans up to 26kg , GM minivans up to 17 kg, Ford F150 truck a 14kg, Buick Park Avenue - 9.5kg, Chrysler minivans - 6kg (2001 data). For comparison, VW Passat, Audi A4 and A6 use roughly 14kg, representing 1% of the vehicle weight, Mercedes SLK ... For example, of 62 mln steering wheels approximately 26 mln are made of magnesium.
