About this book

Injection molding of metallic alloys is a modern and environment-friendly technology with universal features, capable of implementing many conventional and novel processing methods based on semisolid and liquid routes. After its application to magnesium and recent commercialization, it is used to manufacture millions of light-weight, fully-recyclable components for various markets, including consumer electronics housings, automotive parts, sporting goods, household devices and office equipment.

Magnesium Injection Molding takes the mystery out of this technique and covers both the scientific background and the technological aspects as they are understood at present. Fundamentals of magnesium alloys, semisolid state metallurgy and injection molding hardware are accompanied by intricate details of processing, phase transformations and properties of final structures with broad references to die casting and plastics injection. Also included are introductory topics which will allow beginners to understand the basics of magnesium molding and gradually work their way into this fascinating area of metal processing. For subjects where no literature data exist, pioneering research was conducted to provide scientifically credible explanations. As a unique blend of theory and industrial practice, this work represents a single source of interdisciplinary information at a level accessible to both the scientists and engineers from academia and industry.

About the authors

Dr. Czerwinski did 2 years of postdoctoral study at McGill University and 2 years at McMaster University.  He has a PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University, and  a PhD in Materials Engineering from the University of Mining and Metallurgy, Cracow, Poland. 

He was a University Professor of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering and a faculty member for 19 years.  Dr. Czerwinski has been a manager and principal scientist of numerous research projects sponsored by the National Research Council of Canada, universities and industry.  At present, he is a Chief Metallurgist involved in a development of the injection molding machinery and researching metallurgical aspects of semisolid injection molding of metallic alloys.

He is the author of a monograph in surface engineering; and the author and co-author of over 140 reserch papers in peer-review scientific journals and conference proceedings.
