6061 aluminum alloy machining

6061 aluminum alloy is a high-quality aluminum alloy product produced by heat treatment and pre-stretching process.

6061 aluminum alloy characteristics

6061 aluminum alloy is a heat-treated reinforced alloy with good formability, weldability, machinability, and at the same time, it has medium strength and can maintain good operability after annealing. The main features of 6061 aluminum The alloying elements are magnesium and silicon, and form the Mg2Si phase.

Application of 6061 aluminum alloy

First, the application of strips is widely used in decoration, packaging, construction, transportation, electronics, aviation, aerospace, weapons and other industries.

2. Aerospace aluminum is used to make aircraft skins, fuselage frames, girders, rotors, propellers, fuel tanks, siding and landing gear struts, as well as rocket forging rings, spacecraft siding, etc.

3. Aluminum for transportation is used as the body structure material of automobiles, subway vehicles, railway passenger cars, high-speed passenger cars, doors and windows, shelves, automobile engine parts, air conditioners, radiators, body panels, wheel hubs and ships material.

4. Aluminum materials for packaging All-aluminum cans are mainly used as metal packaging materials in the form of sheets and foils, which are made into cans, lids, bottles, barrels and packaging foils. Widely used in beverages, food, cosmetics, medicines, cigarettes, industrial products and other packaging.

5. Aluminum for printing is mainly used to make PS plate. Aluminum-based PS plate is a new type of material in the printing industry, which is used for automatic plate making and printing.

6. Aluminum materials for architectural decoration Aluminum alloys are widely used in building frames, doors and windows, ceilings, decorative surfaces, etc. because of their good corrosion resistance, sufficient strength, excellent process performance and welding performance. Such as various building doors and windows, aluminum profiles for curtain walls, aluminum curtain wall panels, profiled panels, checkered panels, color-coated aluminum panels, etc.

7. Aluminum for electronic household appliances is mainly used in various fields such as busbars, wires, conductors, electrical components, refrigerators, air conditioners, and cables. Specifications: round bar, square bar Representative uses include aerospace fixtures, electrical fixtures, and communications.
