Tp achievement lightweight , magnesium alloy seats were accepted by markets

    Date: 2022-10-21 Author:admin  

With the development of automobile lightweight, the demand for magnesium aluminum and other light alloy castings is increasing year by year. Since 1990, automotive magnesium has been developing rapidly with an average annual growth rate of 20%. Magnesium alloy has become an important field of automotive material technology development. Due to its recyclability and less chip free technology, die-cast magnesium alloy is especially suitable for the requirements of circular economy, energy saving, low carbon and clean production, and plays a leading role in the development of lightweight automobile. Major auto parts manufacturers actively seize the development opportunity, have invested in the production of magnesium alloy automotive die casting research and development.



The application of magnesium alloy in automobile seats is relatively popular and mature. It started in Germany in the 1990s, when Mercedes Benz mainly used magnesium die-casting seat structure with three-point safety belt in SL Roadster. Now the seat structure with magnesium alloy can be as thin as 2mm, which greatly reduces the weight.

Alfa Alfa Romeo156 adopts magnesium alloy front seat frame, with 1.0kg backrest and 1.2kg seat cushion. Compared with the steel frame of the original structure, ALfa Alfa Romeo156 reduces the weight by 2.8kg. The DaimlerChrysler 500 SEL Roadster features a magnesium alloy die-cast seat back and frame. The Hyundai Genesis coupe seat also has a magnesium alloy frame.

The rear seat function is relatively less, the structure is simple, the use of magnesium alloy can effectively reduce the weight. Most of the rear seats adopt die-cast magnesium alloy, which can realize integrated forming; At the same time, magnesium alloy extrusion pipe fitting as the rear seat skeleton research.

In terms of new energy vehicles and low-speed electric vehicles, we will focus on the development of thin-walled seat frames with more lightweight advantages. At the same time, in addition to the backrest, seat basin, slide rail and other main skeleton, the seat support can also be made of magnesium alloy. By replacing the traditional steel frame with extruded magnesium alloy as the seat support, the height of the seat can be increased, and the weight of the parts can be reduced by 51%. At the same time, the seat mode can be increased, and the comfort can also be improved accordingly.




Material:Magnesium alloy AM60B



Die casting machine:1100T High Pressure Cold Chamber machine


Seat Frame Platform produced by Zhongmei Technology,It has low, medium and high-end magnesium alloy seat frames, which can be selected according to the needs of different customers and models.The seat frame can be divided into 2-way, 4-way and 6-way electric adjustment according to the requirements. ECE GB and OEM manufacturer’s test verification has been completed.



Taishan Zhongmei Technology Co., Ltd. is a Chinese company specializing in the research, development and application of magnesium alloy and aluminum alloy materials and products, providing precision parts of magnesium alloy/aluminum alloy high-pressure casting, semi-solid die-casting and liquid die forging for automotive customers. It covers an area of 120,000 kilosquare, with a total investment of 0.2 billion dollars and 400 employees. It is a new material and new energy enterprise. We had pass high-tech enterprise IATF16949:2016 Automotive management system certificate.


China’s abundant magnesium reserves account for more than 70% of the world’s total magnesium resources, including 27% magnesite, ranking first in the world. The development of magnesium alloy industry in China is in line with China’s resource strategy, the world’s demand for magnesium alloy, more competitive prices, and the industrial advantages of supporting facilities for magnesium alloy production. China Magnesium Company is located in Taishan, Guangdong Province, China, near Shenzhen port and Hong Kong, with lower transportation cost and logistics efficiency.



The magnesium ingot used by Zhongmei Technology Co., Ltd. is of high purity and complies with the standard Chinese magnesium alloy. In the process of production, the nozzle and waste are not reused to improve the purity of products, so that the performance of die-casting products is more stable.
