3D Demonstrator—Global Parts In Serial Production
Explore and use the 3D demonstrator to display the parts manufactured with magnesium including structural, BIW (body-in-white), transmission, and interior applications. Click the components in the legend on the left to learn more.
Using IMA's virtual demonstrator, an expert panel of IMA members discussed magnesium automotive parts currently in use in the IMA webinar Magnesium Parts in Serial Production: A Virtual Demonstrator. (Click here for more information.)

IMA's automotive demonstrator provides an interactive tool for visualizing magnesium parts used in serial production. As automakers strive to improve fuel efficiency and improve performance by reducing overall vehicle weight, the use of lightweight
magnesium parts in vehicles is increasing. Currently, models in production use between 5kg and 30kg in magnesium parts. Given that magnesium is 33% lighter than aluminum and 75% lighter than steel, there is significantly more potential for lightweight
magnesium applications across a broad range of product types.
