Cast Aluminium Plate
Precision Machined & Six Sides Sawn

Our aluminium plates are suitable for many different fields of applications, especially for machine building, laser and optical industries, medical technology, mould-making, toolmaking and for architecture. Due to the weight savings gained by using aluminium as well as its ease of machining this material helps to save valuable resources, time and money compared with machining steel.



PRECISION MACHINED CAST ALUMINIUM PLATES
IMPACT-500 (EN AW 5083)

Characterised by an excellent form stability, very good machinability, extremely low residual stresses and high strengths. The very fine-grained and homogeneous microstructure has almost no microporosity. Our aluminium plate is an ideal solution for precision parts with high demands. It has good form stability with extremely low residual stresses.

It is two sides precision machined and PVC Centered on both sides. The excellent flatness and thickness tolerance allows the shortest production times in areas such as mechanical engineering, gauge production and the construction of jigs and fixtures in all kinds of capital goods industries.This aluminium plate has been belt-sanded on both surfaces in the longitudinal direction, to receive a neutral surface, thus eliminating any milling marks.

SIX-SIDES SAWN ALUMINIUM CAST PLATES
IMPACT-506 (EN AW 5083)

Universally applicable - the solution for medium strength applications! Because of the specific inhouse heat treatment, these products get a homogeneous microstructure over the entire ingot cross section. This is an important distinctive feature of rolled plates. The strength of rolled plates decreases towards the ingot core. This medium-strength, six-sides sawn aluminium plates are characterised by an excellent form stability, very good machinability, very good corrosion resistance and good anodising quality. Therefore it is an excellent solution for mechanical engineering and mouldmaking.

Restricted process parameters in the production ensure a very high reproducibility over long production periods. Available in thicknesses up to 1,070 mm / 141.73 in.


SPECIFIC NOTES

  • Extremely stress relieved
  • Excellent form stability
  • Very good corrosion resistance
  • Six-sides sawn

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Mould-making (plastics industry / automotive industry) and mechanical engineering.

  • Injection moulds for prototypes
  • Deep drawing and casting moulds for the plastics industry
  • Foaming and blowing moulds
  • Components requiring a lot of machining

Apart from the high requirements regarding thickness, tolerance, flatness, parallelism and roughness, we put our focus on the 'inner' material characteristics: the physical, metallurgical and technological properties. The consistancy and uniformity of every cut plate guarantees the work ability for any project.



HIGH STRENGTH, PRECISION MACHINED CAST ALUMINIUM PLATES
IMPACT-700 (EN AW 7021)

Strength V’s Precision, our cast aluminium plates combines both! To use all the advantages of this precision machined cast aluminium plates in applications requiring higher strength levels, we distribute this material. The high strength values combined with very low residual stresses are unique and reduce the production time significantly. In addition it has a very good corrosion resistance because of the temper of T79. For this reason, in the last few years it became an better alternative to standard rolled plates as they increase production profitability.

Because of the time saved, you can reduce manufacturing costs by using this material, especially in mechanical engineering and jig making.


SPECIFIC NOTES

  • Precision machined surface
  • High stress relief
  • Very high strength
  • Very good homogeneity
  • Excellent form stability
  • Two surfaces precision milled and foiled on both sides

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Mechanical engineering, jig making & tooling.

  • Highly stressed machine components or requiring a lot of machining
  • Base and table plates
  • Transfer and indexing plates
  • Components requiring high strength values combined with very low residual stresses
  • Tool holders


HIGH STRENGTH, SIX-SIDES SAWN ALUMINIUM CAST PLATES
IMPACT-706 (EN AW 7021)

If the requirements towards the strength are high and the component must endure heavy loads, this is the ideal solution. The six-sides sawn cast aluminium plate is characterised by a very good machinability, very high strength and very low residual stresses. Therefore it is an excellent solution for multiple applications under heavy loads in mechanical engineering and mouldmaking.

The very good ability for polishing leads to excellent product quality and a very long lifetime of injection and foaming moulds. Even components with excessive machining can be realised easily.
