KYLT Magnesium CNC Machining Services

Known for its lightweight properties and exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, magnesium has gained immense popularity across various industries.

KYLT has over 10 years of experience working with Magnesium Milling and turning Machining Prototypes making. We can produce big and thin wall Magnesium parts.

magnesium machining parts by CNC milling

Magnesium Machining, the main working method is to mill Magnesium material to PROTOTYPE, then do Drilling and tapping work. CNC machines, CNC routers, Drilling & Tapping machines are used in the magnesium parts manufacturing process.

Magnesium Machined Parts & Magnesium CNC machining 

Magnesium is the lightest of all metal elements and is primarily used in structural alloys due to its lightweight, strength, and resistance to corrosion.

Magnesium has very good machining abilities like sawing, punching, drilling, milling, turning compared to other metals. The specific cutting power is low and the surface is excellent and the chips are short.  
Magnesium is the fastest machining metal and it has a high thermal conductivity.


Magnesium Advantages :

  1. Long tool life, the tool stays sharp for long time

  2. Low power consumption, about 55% lower than for  aluminium alloys

  3. Reduction of machining time because of the high speeds

  4. Short chips an excellent surface

Magnesium Machining Features:

Magnesium machining is normally done without any coolant. If when necessary to use coolant, a light mineral oil will suffice. Never use water based coolant because of the risk of any reaction with the chips during storage.

High-speed tools or carbide tipped tools are preferred for the machining of magnesium. It is important to keep the cutting tool sharp to avoid to much heat. The experience with diamond tools are excellent but the costs are relatively high. It is necessary to store machined products under dry conditions and when there is a chance of condensation, extra protection is needed. Machines should be kept clean and the turnings should be stored in steel bins.

Products of magnesium will not ignite easily. The magnesium must be heated to the melting point and during normal machining it's virtually impossible. The chips can ignite but precautional methods should avoid this risk.

Magnesium dust how little it may seem has a high degree of flammability and these precautions are necessary to minimize these risk:

  1. Dry machining or use light mineral based oil

  2. Keep cutting tools sharp

  3. Dispatch the chips frequently and store these in steel closed containers

  4. Make sure there is an suitable extinguisher available

  5. Use compressed air with high speed automatic machining when shavings are produced

Should a fire occur, dry turnings will burn slow and evenly. Never use water to extinguish magnesium because the burning magnesium will decompose water to form hydrogen which is easily ignited.
The potassium chloride fire powder extinguisher is the best extinguisher, other common extinguishers such as cast iron turnings and dry sand.
