6061 aluminum plate

A mold is a tool used to make molded objects. It mainly realizes the processing of the shape of the object by changing the physical state of the molded material. Aluminum plate has a series of excellent characteristics and has become the preferred material for making molds. 

6061 aluminum plate belongs to the 6-series Al-Mg-Si alloy. It has high strength and heat treatment stability, high wear resistance, good processing performance, and high temperature resistance, which meets the requirements of mold materials. In the mold manufacturing industry, 80% of the products can be made of 6061 aluminum plate, which is the most used mold aluminum plate model.

Why is 6061 aluminum plate suitable for mold manufacturing?

  • Performance characteristics:

◆ 6061 aluminum plate has medium strength, good corrosion resistance and weldability.

◆ After heat treatment, the hardness can reach about 95HB, which is suitable for mechanical processing.

◆ It has excellent anodizing effect and can be polished, colored and other surface treatments.

  • Processing advantages:

◆ 6061 aluminum plate has good processing performance and is not easy to deform after high-speed processing, especially 6061 T651 aluminum plate eliminates internal stress, which can ensure that the product does not deform during processing.

◆ Light weight and low density make the mold inertia low, easy to accelerate and decelerate, and can reduce the loss of machines and molds.

◆ Good thermal conductivity is beneficial to certain mold applications, such as cake molds.

  • Processing method:

◆ 6061 aluminum plate can be used to manufacture extrusions, forgings, and even casting under certain conditions.

  • Economical efficiency:

◆ 6061 mold aluminum plate has a small thickness tolerance, which can reduce material waste.

◆ Good durability can extend the service life of the mold.

  • Application range:

◆ Suitable for mold manufacturing in the fields of precision machining, automotive parts, electronic product housings, etc.

◆ Widely used in the manufacture of different types of daily necessities molds such as injection molds, blow molds, low-pressure molds, rubber molds, etc.
