Aluminium alloy 6082 is a medium strength alloy and has excellent corrosion resitance.  With it being the highest strength of the 6000 series, alloy 6082 is also known as a structural alloy.  Alloy 6082 is the most commonly used for machining in plate form.

The addition of a large amount of manganese controls the grain structure which in turn results in a stronger alloy.

We carry plate in the following tempers.

  • T6 - Solution heat treated and artificially aged.
  • T651 - Solution heat treated, stress relieved by stretching then artificially aged.

Aluminium Precision Machined Cast Tooling Plate 5083

MG Metals carries a large range of Aluminium Precision Machined two sides Tooling Plate in grade EN AW 5083.  The material is stocked in 3020mm x 1520mm and 3670mm x 1570mm and we can offer material sawn to size, on very short lead times, and can deliver to anywhere within the UK.

Rolling ingots are used for production, which have a fine-grained, homogeneous structure with only low microporosity created in a modified casting process and specific heat treatments. The result is precision plates which are distinguished by very uniform flatness, high strength and good technical anodising properties.

There are many advantages of using Precision Machined Cast Tooling Plate such as;

  • Very uniform flatness
  • Extremely low residual stress
  • Very good corrosion resistance
  • Very good homogeneity
  • Very precise surface

Typical uses for Precision Machined Cast Tooling Plate include;

  • Tooling, Jigs and Fixtures
  • CNC machining of components
  • Mould making
  • Precision engineering
  • Robotic systems
  • Printing machinery
