The mold is a tool used to make shaped objects. It has a complex shape and bears the expansion force of the billet. It has high requirements for structural strength, stiffness, surface hardness, surface roughness and processing accuracy. 6-series aluminum plate is a commonly used mold aluminum plate material, among which 6061 aluminum plate is mostly used, which belongs to Al-Mg-Si alloy, has high strength, good mechanical properties, easy processing and forming, strong usability, and more importantly, it can be strengthened by heat treatment. At present, more than 70% of the aluminum extrusion processing materials on the market are produced with 6-series alloys.
According to the performance requirements of the mold aluminum plate, the aluminum plate used for mold manufacturing in the 1-8 series alloy mainly includes the 5/6 series alloy with medium hardness and the 2/7 series alloy with strong hardness. The main alloying element of the 5 series alloy is magnesium, which has the characteristics of corrosion resistance, high plasticity and easy processing. 2/7 series alloys are mainly used in occasions requiring high hardness.
What are the advantages of 6061 aluminum plate manufacturers_ aluminum alloy molds:
1. Light weight.
2. It has good process performance and formability, easy machining and high dimensional stability.
3. Good thermal conductivity.
4. The welding performance is good, and the performance of the welding area will not change.
5. High corrosion resistance.
How much is a ton of 6061 mold aluminum plate?
The price of aluminum plate is related to the product specification, alloy model, production process, the price of aluminum ingots on the day, sea freight, etc. MC Aluminum uses the method of adding processing fees to the price of aluminum ingots shipped on the day to calculate. The price of aluminum ingots can be found on the Internet, and the price is transparent.
At present, there are many large and small aluminum plate manufacturers in the market, the raw materials used and the production process level are different, and the pricing is high or low. Don't be fooled by some ultra-low prices. Large manufacturers have guaranteed quality and more reasonable prices.
