SAWN ALUMINIUM PLATE
Bespoke aluminium plate, cut to size, with fast lead times to help your project complete on time.
STATE-OF-THE-ART ALUMINIUM PLATING SERVICES
Our extensive on-site processing facilities enable MG Metals to supply sawn aluminium plate cut to your required size meaning little or no waste.
We also boast a highly skilled team of fully trained operators with many years’ experience within the industry who will process, cut and pack material ensuring it arrives with the customer in excellent condition.
We have invested in a brand new Schelling FM8 Plate Saw and Erbo swarf extraction system. This new addition to our existing plate saws will ensure our customers receive sawn plate on very short lead times, anywhere within the UK.
RANGE OF ALUMINIUM PLATE ALLOYS, THICKNESS AND TEMPERS
Our plate is cut using the latest cutting technology and is cut to very tight tolerances and giving an excellent finish. The material is handled using vacuum lifts and supported with air beds on the saw ensuring no marks or scratches on the plate.
MG Metals carry a large range of plate in 6082T6 and 6082T651 in thicknesses starting from 1.50mm up to 8″ (203.20mm) thick. Our standard plate range is 6mm – 152.40mm (6”). The plate sizes we stock are 2520mm x 1270mm and 3020mm x 1520mm and we can cut to your required size to suit your individual requirements and deliver anywhere within the UK on very short lead times.
Aluminium alloy 6082 is a medium strength alloy and has excellent corrosion resistance. 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
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.
