Aluminum Sheet Metal Fabrication

Aluminum alloy sheet is one of the most commonly used materials in the aluminum sheet fabrication. Because of its light weight, good strength, good corrosion resistance, and good processing performance, it is widely used by aluminum sheet fabrication factory to process parts for aviation, aerospace, automobiles, machinery manufacturing, ship, building and chemical industries, especially producing aluminum sheet metal shells. The aluminum sheet metal shell is applied by many manufacturing industries because of its light weight and high hardness.

Cost-effective aluminum panel shell fabrication is the process of forming a piece of sheet aluminum material to manufacture required shape and size part. This process require cutting or forming the material. Most china aluminum sheet metal fabrication manufacturing processes include sheet metal cutting, sheet metal stamping, sheet metal forming, sheet metal welding, surface finishes, etc. Choosing which process? It depends on the characteristics and features of product design. However, sheet metal forming and sheet metal cutting are generally the most in-demand processes for China aluminum sheet metal fabrication.

Advantages of Aluminum Sheet Metal Fabrication Parts

Due to some unique advantages of aluminum alloy, aluminum sheet metal parts have become the components and shell parts of many products. What are the advantages of aluminum sheet metal parts?

  • Simple Installation

    Because aluminum has a low density and can be processed into various shapes, it is more convenient to assemble. Even if the surface is damaged, it can be repaired quickly, and cumbersome processing procedures are no longer required.

  • High safety factor

    Due to its high strength and rigidity, aluminum sheet metal parts can withstand large enough pressure, bending force, tension force, and impact force even when the thickness is relatively thin, and can still show a good safety factor and effectively protect the interior. Electronic components, product use is guaranteed.

  • Long Lasting

    Aluminum sheet metal parts have relatively low requirements on the use environment. Even in the case of relatively poor environment, it is also a good protection for the use of electronic products. It has strong corrosion resistance, and the use of aluminum alloy casing can reduce damage; the casing made of aluminum alloy It is hard and can be cold processed to strengthen its hardness, and has excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, which is more in line with the current market demand than other shells.

  • Excellent Performance

    The aluminum sheet metal shell can produce a thick and solid oxide film, which can be used in electronic components for a long time, will not be corroded by environmental elements, and has strong durability.

  • Cost Effective

    Aluminum sheet metal parts have a long service life, which greatly reduces the cost of use.

  • Adapt to Various Environments

    The aluminum alloy sheet metal shell is strong water proof, can be used in the field and places with poor environment, has high flexibility, has good leakage prevention performance, and the depth can be cut arbitrarily according to needs.

  • Recyclable

    If the aluminum alloy sheet metal parts are damaged, they can be replaced at any time, and the replaced products can be recycled, which protects resources and the environment at the same time.

Common Aluminum Alloys Used for Sheet Metal Fabrication

  • Aluminum 6061 

    6061 aluminum alloy is a heat treatment strengthenable alloy, which has good formability, weldability, machinability, and medium strength, and can still maintain good strength after annealing. The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon, and form Mg2Si phase. If it contains a certain amount of manganese and chromium, it can neutralize the bad effect of iron; sometimes a small amount of copper or zinc is added to improve the strength of the alloy without significantly reducing its corrosion resistance; the melting temperature of 6061 aluminum alloy At 582~652°C, the old brand is LD30.

  • Aluminum 5052

    5052 aluminum alloy is a 5-series alloy. The advantages of 5052 aluminum alloy are high strength, especially high fatigue resistance, plasticity and corrosion resistance, good weldability, polishability, and medium strength.

  • Aluminum 1100

    1100 aluminum alloy is formed by adding a small amount of copper element to pure aluminum, which has excellent forming and processing characteristics, high corrosion resistance, good weldability and electrical conductivity. Widely used in products that require good formability and high corrosion resistance, but low strength requirements, such as chemical equipment, food industry equipment and storage containers, cooking utensils, pressure tanks, small metal parts for thin plate processing, etc.

  • Aluminum 3003

    3003 aluminum plate is AL-Mn series aluminum alloy, which is the most widely used antirust aluminum alloy. The strength of this aluminum alloy is not high (slightly higher than industrial pure aluminum), and it cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. Therefore, cold working methods are used to improve its mechanical properties. It is mainly used for low load parts that require high plasticity and good weldability, working in liquid or gaseous media, such as gasoline or lubricating oil conduits.
