Warm Forming of Magnesium Sheet Metal 2004-01-1043
This paper deals with warm forming of Magnesium AZ 31 sheet metals. Experimental investigations on the formability of AZ31 at temperatures up 350°C have been carried out. The following the results of these investigations, such as stress-strain curves, forming limit curves are presented. For hydromechanical deep drawing, the influence of the tool- and fluid temperature on the achievable maximal drawing ratio and on the maximal achievable strains in the bottom of the component is shown.
