Magnesium Alloy Machining

What are the applications of magnesium alloys in the field of medical equipment spare parts machining?

 What is magnesium alloy

Due to its excellent mechanical properties, biocompatibility and biodegradability, magnesium alloy has shown great advantages and potential, which has attracted more and more researchers' attention domestic and overseas and has become one of the research hot spots.

 Biocompatibility of magnesium alloys was demonstrated in early clinical applications in 1907 but failed because magnesium alloys corroded too quickly invivo and produced excessive hydrogen under the skin. The study of corrosion characteristics of Magnesium and its alloys and the improvement of surface modification technology become the key to its application in the field of biological materials. With the continuous research and testing of Magnesium, the corrosion resistance of magnesium alloy has been greatly improved. So what are the characteristics and advantages of magnesium alloy medical materials, and what medical applications?

What are some features and advantages of magnesium alloy machining?   

(1) Magnesium is one of the largest cations contained in the human body. It almost participates in all metabolic processes in the human body. It has the effect of reducing pressure, helping sleep and relaxing expression, and effectively preventing and treating some diseases.

(2) lt has good mechanical properties and is very close to the elastic modulus of human bone, which can reduce the adverse reactions caused by the mismatch of elastic modulus between the implant and human bone, thus promoting the healing of bone tissue.

(3) It is biodegradable and avoids the pain and mental stress caused by the second operation to remove the magnesium alloy

What are the applications of magnesium alloy machining in the field of medical equipment?

Magnesium plays an important role in preventing metabolism. Magnesium is also the main component of bone, which can promote bone, tooth, and cell formation and plays an important role in regulating bone mineral metabolism. Magnesium alloy is the most similar to human bone density and has unique advantages (about 1.7g/cm magnets in alloy density and 1.75g / human bone density). In addition, due to the metal material properties of magnesium alloy, it's plasticity, stiffness, and machining performance are far superior to degradable polymer materials such as polylactic acid, which has been clinically applied, so it is more suitable for clinical application in bone and another hard tissue repair and interventional therapy. The current main applications of Magnesium are as below:

  • Wheelchair and other rehabilitation medical equipment, Orthopedic biomaterials,

  • Orthopedics (bone nail, bone plate), Cardiovascular stents,

  • Anastomotic nail stapler, Neural connectors, etc

What is the future development prospect of magnesium alloy processing?

As a new generation of hard materials, the research on magnesium alloy has just started. If magnesium alloy is to be widely used as a medical material in the medical field, the physical, chemical, and biological properties of magnesium alloy are also more stringent requirements. It is believed that with the progress of science and technology and further research, magnesium alloy products will be more and more widely used for the benefit of mankind.
