Direct chill cast billet is manufactured by XYCM as the starting
material for other magnesium products, such as sheet, plate,
forgings and extrusions. However, it has been frequently found that
the cast billet is suitable for machining into prototypes, thus
avoiding expensive tooling, and in some cases for production where
the size of the finished items is outside economic casting or
extrusion dimension or minimum economic production. The Diameter of
the cast billet is from Dia. 90mm to max. Dia. 600mm. The max.
length is 4500mm.
Cast billet is supplied to clients on the compositional and
homogenized condition. The Chemical Composition is as per AZ31B,
AZ61A, AZ80A and ZK61M. Inspection standards for billet will be by
agreement. Ultrasonic Inspection as per AMS-STD-2154 Class A.
Temporary corrosion preventative surface treatments can be applied
CONTINUOUS CAST MACHINING MAGNESIUM ALLOY SLAB
XYCM supplies direct chill continuous cast machining slab for
manufacturer of parts which are larger than possible by
conventional production methods, the shape of slab is rectangular,
with two opposing faced and edges (if required) machined, and then
sawn to ordered size. The alloy for machining stock is AZ31B per
the chemical composition requirements of ASTM B90/B90M-07.
Max. Thickness: 340mm (after machining)
Max. Width: 960mm (after machining)
Max. Length: 2000mm (after sawing)
Special required alloy and size combinations may be available on
