We have the ability to LASER CUT ALUMINIUM sheet metal in thicknesses between 0.7mm – 20mm.
In its pure form, aluminium is easily worked and possesses a high level of corrosion resistance but its low strength reduces the applications for which it is suitable. When alloyed, however, aluminium becomes an extremely versatile and widely used material, improved strength, corrosion resistance, ductility, workability, weldability and machinability are all possible.
We laser cut aluminium in these grades
Where moderate strength is required, 1050 aluminium is a popular choice. This alloy of aluminium also has high levels of corrosion resistance, high ductility, and a highly reflective finish.
1050 Aluminium is also very suitable for soldering, welding (Arc and Gas), as well as being very workable.
1050 Aluminium laser cut components have applications in chemical process plant equipment, lamp reflectors, food industry containers and architectural flashings.
Aluminium 5083 is particularly suited to components that need to perform in extreme environments. Aluminium 5083 is highly resistant to corrosion by both sea water and chemical environments. The material also retains exceptional strength after welding. It is the highest strength of the aluminium alloys which are not heat-treatable.
Typical applications of 5083 aluminium laser cut components include: pressure vessel components, ship building, vehicle bodies, and tip truck bodies.
Aluminium 5251 is an alloy of aluminium with medium strength, coupled with good ductility and good formability. It is known for work hardening rapidly as well as being readily weldable (Gas, arc, and resistance). It also has particularly high corrosion resistance in marine environments.
Typical applications of 5251 Aluminium laser cut components are: boats, marine structures, silos, vehicle panels, aircraft parts and panelling and pressings.
Aluminium 6082 is an alloy of aluminium that has particularly high resistance to corrosion, as well as medium strength. It is the highest strength grade of the “6000” series of alloys. 6082 Aluminium is known as a structural alloy and is the aluminium alloy that is most commonly used for machining.
Typical applications of Aluminium 6082 laser cut components include: bridge building, transport & automotive, and cranes.
