Applications of 6061 aluminum Sheet and aluminum plate

addtiame:2016/09/21 click:
6061 aluminum sheet and plate are commonly used for the following:

1. 6061 aluminum sheet  and plate can be used in construction of aircraft structures, such as wings and fuselages, more commonly in homebuilt aircraft than commercial or military aircraft. 6061 is more easily worked and remains resistant to corrosion even when the surface is abraded than other alloys.

2. 6061 aluminum sheet and plate can be used in yacht construction, including small utility boats and Marine vessels .

3. 6061 aluminum sheet  and plate can be used in the automobile industry for some automotive parts, such as wheel spacers.

4. 6061 aluminum sheet  and plate can be used in making some tactical flashlights.

5. 6061 aluminum sheet  and plate can be used in producing aluminium cans for the packaging of food and beverages.

6. 66061 aluminum sheet  and plate can be used in manufacturing SCUBA tanks and storage tanks.

7. 6061 aluminum sheet  and plate can be used in structural architectural parts.

8. 6061 aluminum sheet  and plate can also be used in making heat exchangers.

Extrusions

6061 aluminum sheet  is an alloy used in the production of extrusions—long constant–cross-section structural shapes produced by pushing metal through a shaped die.

Forgings

6061 aluminum sheet  is an alloy that is suitable for hot forging. The billet is heated through an induction furnace and forged using a closed die process. This patricular alloy is suitable for open die forgings. Automotive parts, ATV parts, and industrial parts are just some of the uses as a forging. Aluminum 6061 can be forged into flat or round bars, rings, blocks, discs and blanks, hollows, and spindles. 6061 can be forged into special and custom shapes.
