Magnesium parts can be fabricated by most of the standard metal working methods provided the process is adapted to the metal. Both casting and forming processes are routinely used to make magnesium parts on a production basis. Secondary operations are also standard practice for this industry. Described in this paper are some of these standard fabricating techniques and the modifications required.
