Thixomolding - Injection Molding of Magnesium
Thixomolded magnesium for structural parts and cosmetic enclosures
Thixomolding allows you to design parts that are stiff, light, strong, recyclable, and inherently shielded.
Parkway’s Thixomolding process combines the best of plastic and metal. Thixomolding offers the design freedom of injection molding with the benefits of magnesium’s high material performance. Thin-walled enclosures or super strong structural components with impact resistance are hallmarks of this process. Due to the conductivity of magnesium, Thixomolded parts have inherent shielding for EMI/RFI and solve your shielding problems without conductive paint.
Magnesium Thixomolding has become one of the fastest growing global part manufacturing technologies. Thixomolding can be a desirable design replacement for injection molded plastic, cast metal, advanced composite materials and even sheet metal fabrications. Secondary operations include finishing and plastic, rubber, and urethane overmolding.
Parkway also offers tight tolerance injection molding of plastics.
