The extensive use of Magnesium sheet materials is hindered due to some properties, like mechanical anisotropy, relatively low absolute strength values and poor formability. The properties of such structural parts are dependent on the evolved microstructure from the process. A better understanding is necessary for outlining the needs in microstructure and texture development for designing suitable properties of wrought magnesium components. A combination of new technologies and innovative alloys could help to alleviate the strong textures formed in semi-finished Mg products. The presentation will show Mg-sheet development via twin roll casting technology and the how the subsequent warm rolling process influences the properties of the final magnesium sheet metal. Further optimisation of process parameters of twin roll casting and of the rolling process in combination with alloy design lead to a microstructure showing promising mechanical properties like high formability und high strength
