Magnesium is an excellent choice to distinguish portable and durable products from the competition, offering a perfect combination of light weight, rigidity and resistance to wear for diverse applications. From concept to completion, Pace Industries works with customers to introduce the distinctive benefits of this material. Whether it is prototypes, tooling or a long-term production relationship, we have the knowledge and expertise to deliver.
Magnesium is the lightest of all structural metals and is used extensively in applications demanding high performance characteristics. In addition to being 75% lighter than steel and 33% lighter than aluminum, its weight is nearly equal to many plastics and offers several distinct advantages over plastic including superior stiffness and wear resistance. It can also be used in high temperature applications. Other advantages of magnesium include:
- Outstanding Dimensional Control
- Ultra-Thin Wall Design Options
- Excellent Vibration Dampening and Shock Absorption
- EMI/RFI Shielding
- Long Tooling Life to Lower Total Production Cost
- Abundant Finishing Options
