The invention relates to a method for producing hot-rolled strips of magnesium wrought alloys. Magnesium is the metal with the lowest density, its strength properties similar strength properties of aluminum, and it can replace the latter as material for lightweight constructions. However, a necessary condition for widespread use of magnesium as a material for lightweight constructions is the presence of cheap sheet materials. Currently, magnesium sheets are available on the market only in small quantities and at high prices. This is due to the high costs associated with hot rolling of sheet or strip of wrought magnesium alloys at the modern level of technology. The latter is described in detail in Reference magnesium (Izd-vo "Aluminium-Verlag", , düsseldorf, 2000, 1st edition, str-429). The main difficulty during hot rolling sheets of wrought magnesium alloys is that widely used source material produced by casting in ingots or continuous casting, solidifies with the formation of large grains and pores and contains numerous segregation and large selection. The cast ingots are often subjected to homogenizing annealing subsequent to hot rolling in the temperature range 200-450°C. When such events in most cases is to have to repeatedly heat the rolled material, because otherwise formed marriage due to cracking.

Taken there have been attempts to improve the deformability and properties of hot-rolled magnesium sheet due to the receipt of relevant source materials, and then get to hot rolling tape. This method is known for example from US 5316598. In this known method, conduct rapid solidification of magnesium powder, pressed at a temperature of from 150 to 275°C. By extrusion or forging of such ingot receive the semi-finished product, which is then rolled in a sheet with a thickness of at least 0.5 mm Temperature rolling is thus 200-300°C. thus Obtained hot-rolled magnesium ribbon is characterized by superplastic properties and has at room temperature a high tensile strength and good toughness in the direction of rolling.

However, the disadvantage of this method is that to obtain a semi-finished first prepare magnesium powder, which must be compressed and then cooled quickly. Related costs for personnel and equipment related to the large production costs. In addition, it was found that the deformation of the semifinished product during hot rolling, despite the complexity of its receipt, remains difficult to control.

Along with lists and describes the output of the above prior art of JP 06293944 And a method of obtaining magnesium sheet, which is first made by the casting of the slab from the melt containing 0.5-1.5% of rare-earth metals, of 0.1 to 0.6% zirconium, 2,0-4,0% zinc and the remainder magnesium. Then this slab is subjected to hot rolling in two stages, with the second stage hot rolling temperature rolling is 180-230°C, preferably 180-200°and the total deformation is 40-70%, preferably 40-60%. Received this tape has good deformability. However, hot rolling in two stages makes the rolling process and the necessary temperature time-consuming and hard to control. The closest technical solution, the set of essential characteristics and purpose is a method for hot-rolled magnesium ribbon, known from the publication Altman MB, etc.. Magnesium alloys. Handbook, Vol.2, Moscow, metallurgy, 1978, s-156.

A method of obtaining a hot-rolled magnesium ribbon includes obtaining strip billet continuous casting of molten magnesium alloy hot rolling strip workpiece, which lead directly after casting several passes with getting hot rolled tape. However, this known method has disadvantages of the prior art, since the magnesium refers to metals with a hexagonal crystal lattice, which leads to e is of low plasticity, leading to cracking of the rolled material and, consequently, to marriage. Taking into account the above prior art, the basis of the invention was based on the task of creating a method that allows for a lower cost of production to get magnesium sheets with improved deformability.

This task is solved in that in a method of producing hot-rolled magnesium ribbon, including the production of strip billet continuous casting of molten magnesium alloy hot rolling strip workpiece, which lead directly after casting several passes with obtaining a hot-rolled strip, according to the invention, the receive bandpass billet thickness not exceeding 50 mm, hot rolling is carried out at initial temperatures of at least 250°and not more than 500°to a final thickness not exceeding 4 mm, while on the first pass, during hot rolling, compression is at least 15%.

According to the invention bandpass billet cast thickness up to 50 mm, which is due to its slight thickness cools rapidly and becomes superior, fine-grained and malabarista structure. Micro - and macrolevel summarized in this state to a minimum. Also primary, necessarily present selection have a thin, evenly distributed form that will complement the flax contributes to the formation of a thin katana patterns. Thus obtained is particularly fine-grained structure contributes to the deformability during subsequent hot rolling and facilitates optimal for the subsequent deformation of alloys. In addition, the formation of fine patterns contributes to the compression of at least 15% on the first pass during hot rolling. Thanks already present in the cast condition and improve in the subsequent rolling process structure up magnesium sheet, technological properties which are much better compared to traditionally produced in the leaves.

Another advantage of applied, according to the invention, the continuous strip casting of billets made of magnesium alloy with further carried out after the casting roll is that previously used to obtain magnesium sheets, the share of scrap decreased significantly. In addition, through the application of appropriate smelting and foundry technology provides significant freedom in the use of raw materials. This minimizes the energy consumption when using casting and rolling technology, according to the invention, and provides more flexibility in terms of the range of manufactured products.

A particularly economical use of the method according to the invention, in the case when the strip workpiece p is dvigaetsa hot rolling immediately after casting. Depending on the properties subjected to processing of the alloy and the equipment used may also be appropriate prior to hot rolling to equalize the temperature in strip harvesting to bring to the temperature at the start of hot rolling.

At this temperature equalization is achieved a uniform temperature distribution in the strip harvesting and additional homogenization of the structure.

Oxidation of the surface of the tape and the formation of unwanted oxides inside the structure can be reliably excluded in the casting alloy in an organized accordingly recrystallization in a protective gas atmosphere.

The formation of the structure can be further promote due to the fact that during the first pass, during hot rolling, compression is at least 20%.

In order to ensure deformability of the tape during hot rolling starting temperature rolling should be at least 250°C.

Good deformability is obtained, according to the invention, the passband of the workpiece allows laminating rolled the tape after the first pass continuously in several passes to the final thickness. Heated between passes of rolling is not required due to the heat generated in the deformation process.

In the absence of line DL is finishing hot rolling tape hot rolled magnesium ribbon can be obtained, according to the invention, by reversing hot rolling in several passes.

If hot rolling is required to compensate for the downtime, during which it is impossible to continue the continuous rolling process, it is advisable to wrap the hot rolled strip at least after the first pass, the hot winder and keeping it at the right temperature rolling. Preferably, when reversing hot rolling hot rolled strip after each passage was tied on a hot winder and was maintained at the appropriate temperature rolling. Temperature rolling, in which the hot rolled strip is maintained on the winder, is preferably at least 300°C.

Based on the properties of deformability and thickness of the tape after finishing the total compression during hot rolling must be at least 60%.

The method according to the invention, it is preferable to apply for magnesium wrought alloy containing up to 10% aluminum, up to 10% lithium, up to 2% zinc and 2% manganese. For the formation of small grains in the structure after solidification can be doped zirconium or cerium in an amount up to 1%.
