A mold is a tool used to make a molded item, and it is used to process the shape of the item by changing the physical state of the material being molded.
Aluminum sheet has a series of excellent characteristics and has become the preferred material for making molds.
Aluminum plate for mold includes 6061 aluminum plate, 5052 aluminum plate, 5083 aluminum plate, 7075 aluminum plate, 2024 aluminum plate, etc.
The best choice of aluminum plate for making molds
In the mold manufacturing industry, 80% of the products can be made of 6061 aluminum plate material.
6061 aluminum plate belongs to the 6-series genus Al-Mg-Si alloy, which has high strength and heat treatment stability, high wear resistance, good processing performance, high temperature resistance, and meets the requirements of materials for molds, and is also one of the widely used mold aluminum plate models.
It is widely used in electromechanical products, such as automobiles, bicycles, sewing machines, cameras, motors, electrical appliances, meters, etc., as well as in the field of daily-use appliances.
The molds made of 6061 aluminum plates have the advantages of good mechanical properties, good usability, good thermal conductivity, material saving, high speed processing, not easy to deformation, high-temperature resistance, and good wear resistance.
