Key body structure applications, such as floor rails, shock towers, and pillars, are now being manufactured using high-pressure non-ferrous castings. The use of magnesium in automotive body parts is limited, but it has recently been observed to be expanding.
GM has been employing a single-piece die-cast roof frame, since the introduction of C-5 Corvette in 1997. Cadillac XLR roadster's retractable hardtop convertible roof and top frame employ magnesium alloys. SUVs and Ford F-150 trucks are coated with magnesium castings, for the vehicles' radiator support, and Dodge Viper is coated with one-piece magnesium front-of-dash die casting. In Europe, for body panel applications, the German auto giants, Volkswagen and Mercedes, have employed thin-wall magnesium die castings. Thin-wall casing application constitutes a major part of magnesium usage in the automotive industry. Thin-wall die castings, such as closure inners, can often offset the material cost penalty of magnesium, over steel sheet metal construction, due to part consolidation.
The first magnesium die-cast closure to ever meet 55 mph rear crash requirements is used in liftgate inner panel, and the part is found in 2010 Lincoln MKT. The key aspect of manufacturing thin-wall castings, which are approximately less than 2mm, lies in the design of casting, using proper radii, and smooth die-filling of the ribs to stiffen the parts.
Thus, depending on the application and the area of employment, magnesium die casting components are gaining popularity within the body part segment, and their usage is expected to increase during the forecast period.
