Abstract

Mg–3Al–1Zn alloy extruding rods were subjected to rotary forging at temperatures ranging from room temperature to 723 K. The effect of rotary forging on formability, microstructures, and hardness of the samples was investigated. Compared to common forging, rotary forging appeared to significantly promote formability at elevated temperatures, especially at 673 K and 723 K. Dynamic crystallization occurred in both samples prepared at these two temperatures, whereas newly generated grains in the 673 K were much finer. A special tilted basal texture was discovered in both samples, exhibiting strong anistropy, and the hardness in the cross section increased from the center to the edge of the samples.
