Innovative solutions at the synergy of plastic and metal
Thixomolded magnesium provides designers and engineers a powerful material and process advantage. By combining the lightweight metallic properties of magnesium alloy with the ease of thermoplastic injection molding based processing, Parkway is able to provide a solution to a number of molded parts supply issues.
The Thixomolding process is able to produce ultra thin walls and complex, tight tolerance designs. Thixomolded magnesium is lighter than cast steel or aluminum, has a superior surface finish and is produced in a cleaner, more economical process. It is also stiffer than plastics, is thermally conductive and has RFI/EMI shielding properties without plating.
