Aluminium sheet for mold 5052, 6061 and 7075 are widely used in 80% of different mold industries such as injection molds, blow molds, low pressure molds and rubber molds. With the development of the market, super-hard aluminum has replaced steel in the market as the main material for mold processing. Mold aluminum has significant advantages over die steel.

aluminium sheet for mold

1, Light weight.
The impression that the aluminium sheet gives people is light weight. It is true that the density of the aluminum plate is only 36% of that of the general steel mold. Therefore, the inertia of the mold processed by the aluminum plate is relatively low, and the addition and deceleration are relatively easy in the production process, which can effectively reduce the loss of the mold, the advantage is significant.

2, Good corrosion resistance
In the natural environment, the aluminium sheet plate has good corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance, especially the 5052 aluminum plate, the 6061 aluminum plate, and the 7075 aluminum plate have been widely used in mold manufacturing.

3, Strong mechanical processing
The aluminum plate is easy to machine and has high dimensional stability. The cutting speed of the aluminum plate is more than 6 times faster than that of the general die steel, which can greatly reduce the mold processing time and effectively provide the production speed.

4, Good thermal conductivity
The thermal conductivity of the aluminium sheet for mold is higher than that of the general die steel, and the cold cutting time during the mold production can be saved by more than 50%, and the production efficiency of the mold is greatly improved.
