Thixomolding is a semi-solid (Thixotropic) molding process for magnesium somewhat analogous to plastic injection molding.

Magnesium chips are fed at ambient temperature into a heated barrel and propelled forward by a rotating screw.

The combined heat from resistance type heater bands and the shearing force provided by the rotating screw create a slurry of spheroidal solid particles within a molten matrix.

This slurry is forced into a pre-heated mold to produce high precision, ultra-thin wall net or near net shaped parts.

The process combines the benefits of die casting and plastic injection molding.
