Ann Arbor Company Rolls Out Magnesium Nanotech

Abstract:
Thixomat Inc., an Ann Arbor technology development company, this week introduced NanoMag, a patented environmentally friendly process for the production and marketing of high strength, light weight magnesium sheet with nanometer microstructures for automotive, aerospace, military, biomedical and other applications.

NanoMag will be formally introduced to the public at SAE 2009, April 20-23, at Cobo Center in Detroit.

The process, developed in conjunction with the Department of Material Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan and under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, offers numerous advantages in material integrity and cost savings over any other product now available, according to Dr. Steve LeBeau, Thixomat's CEO. NanoMag is a subsidiary of Thixomat.

The foundation of the NanoMag technology is the unique Thixomolding Thermal Mechanical Process, TTMP. TTMP is the magnesium industry equivalent of the mini-mill used to produce lower cost, high quality steel products. The process enables NanoMag to market its product at favorable pricing, according to LeBeau.
