The Difference of Three States of 6061 Aluminum Plate and Its Main Uses
6061 aluminium plate has high strength, good corrosion resistance and anti-oxidation effect. It is widely used in automatic mechanical parts, precision processing, automobile chassis, cake mould and so on. It is popular with the majority of users. But what are the differences among the three states of 6061 aluminium plate T6, F and O? What are the advantages of 6061 aluminium plate as automobile chassis and cake mould? Now there are Henan aluminium plate manufacturers for you to explain in detail!
The Difference of T6, F and O State of 6061 Aluminum Plate
The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminium sheet are magnesium and silicon, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance and good oxidation effect. 6061 aluminium sheet is widely used after heat treatment. 6061 aluminium sheet is used in automatic mechanical parts, precision processing and various die manufacturing.
Commonly used status of 6061 aluminium sheet:
The state of T6 is the most widely used in 6061 aluminium alloy. The state of 6061 medium and heavy plate is quenched, sliced, stretched, aged, sawed, polished and packaged by medium and heavy plate. The whole production cycle is about 10 days. After solid solution heat treatment, it does not need cold processing. It can be straightened and leveled, but it does not affect the mechanical properties.
F state is the free working state of 6061 aluminium alloy. It is suitable for special products with work hardening and heat treatment conditions in the forming process. F-state production cycle is very short: medium and heavy plate slicing-sawing machine-polishing (or not polishing, according to customer requirements) - packaging, the entire process can be arranged smoothly for 3 days to ship, F-state mechanical properties do not require specifications, customers according to their own needs can re-heat the F-state processing, production into the required state of use. The corresponding price is also the cheapest.
The O state is the lowest strength processed product of 6061 aluminium alloy after complete annealing. It is suitable for the production of 6061 aluminium alloy sheets below 8.0. Its production process is as follows: thickness of cold rolled products - cleaning by stretching and bending rectification - complete annealing - flying shear (or stretching and bending rectified products) - packaging and storage, etc. Its production cycle is second only to that of T6 state.
Application of 6061 Alloy Aluminum Plate in Automotive Chassis
Vehicle chassis is the main frame of vehicle chassis. The power parts of all vehicles, including engines, axles, gearboxes, differential and suspension systems, are mounted on the chassis.
The function of the automobile chassis is to support and install the automobile engine and its components and assemblies, to form the overall shape of the automobile, and to accept the power of the engine, so that the automobile can generate movement and ensure normal driving. At the same time, a good chassis can ensure the safety of the driver's life.
At present, the lightweight of automobile is a major trend. The lightweight of automobile is to optimize the design of automobile products or use new materials by using modern design methods and effective means. Under the premise of ensuring the comprehensive performance indicators of automobile, the comprehensive indicators of weight reduction, energy saving, emission reduction and safety can be achieved.
Automobile lightweight has the following advantages: 1. Lightweight. Aluminum is at least 100 kg lighter than traditional steel. Enhance power, fuel economy and maneuverability. 2. Corrosion resistance. Durability is higher than steel. 3. Safer. Aluminum absorbs twice as much energy as steel.
Automobile chassis occupies a large part of the overall weight of the car. How to effectively reduce the weight of the car body under the condition of ensuring safety, the material of automobile chassis has high performance requirements for aluminium plate. 6061 aluminium plate can be made into healthy and beautiful cake mould
What kind of material is healthy for cake moulds? Generally speaking, anodized aluminium molds are the best, cheaper and without coating, which is harmless to the body. Because aluminium has good thermal conductivity and uniform heating, it is conducive to baking. From the point of view of its wide use, aluminium is used more. And it's strong and durable. It's not as heavy and fragile as porcelain. Although there are also silica gel materials on the market, but the silica gel mold is soft, it is not easy to separate the pastry from the mold, generally speaking, the aluminium baking mold is better.
