Aluminium Sheet Metal Cutting

Aluminium sheet metal cuttingOur reputation for Aluminium sheet metal cutting comes from over 50 years of versatility and professional service. Using state of the art laser cutting and CNC punching machines.

Aluminium is the most abundant metal to be found in nature. It is extracted from its main ore by an electrolytic process. This is a fairly expensive process owing to the high levels of electricity required. Therefore it tends to have a higher cost than steel.

Advantages:

  • Lightweight (2990 kg/m^3)
  • Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
  • Easy to machine and form
  • Good corrosion resistance due to thin layer of aluminium oxide on the outer surface
  • Good thermal and electrical conductivity

Pure aluminium isn’t normally used as an engineering material. To increase its strength it tends to be alloyed with small amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, magnesium or zinc.
