In this paper, single roll melt spinning technique is used as a sustainable manufacturing process to reduce waste, time, energy, and cost. The nonconventional forming machine is manufacturing to produce very thin ribbon of 5052 and 5083 Al-Mg alloys in the range of micrometer. It is a tool for modifying the microstructure of alloy and improved their properties. The process has a direct impact for saving materials, machine, method, men, and money (5M) compared with conventional forming technology due to their ability to produce very thin ribbons directly from liquid state. The properties of the produced ribbons were investigated and the result indicating that there is a possibility to produce ribbons with micro thickness of 20 to 330 μm and width of 0.97 to 7.4 mm. Moreover, the hardness was improved to be more than twice of the original hardness of alloy. The corrosion resistance of alloy was improved and their rate was reduced.
