Aluminum Tooling & Jig Plate

The aluminum plate used for tooling is usually made of aluminum thick plate, and some of them may use the cast ultra-thick plate. Aluminum mold plate has fine and uniform grain structure. It is famous for its excellent thickness tolerance, and has the first-class stability among all aluminum plate products. This type of aluminum is very suitable for precision applications. Its welding, anodizing and corrosion resistance are very good.Welcome contact

Classification of aluminum tooling & jig plate

There are three types of aluminum tooling and jig plate: casted aluminum tooling plate, rolling aluminum tooling plate and molding aluminum tooling plate.Quick Quote

  • Cast aluminum tooling plate

    It is a continuous casting plate, processed on both sides to about 25 micro inches, and then relieved of thermal stress. Cast tooling plate has the best thickness tolerance, maximum stability. Chalco cast aluminum alloy tool plates are very suitable for precision applications. Usually used in the thickness range of 6mm to 50mm, can also provide thicknesses up to 150mm.

  • Rolled aluminum tooling plate

    Usually made of 5000 series alloys. Annealing improves the ductility of the alloy and reduces its hardness. Then, the metal is precision machined to form dimensions with minimum tolerances. Chalco rolled aluminum plates have higher ductility, good machinability, better weldability and anodizing performance. Rolling is often used for strength applications, such as engineering, construction, manufacturing, and food industries.

  • Mold aluminum tooling plate

    Molded aluminum alloy tool plates are usually rolled tool plates, manufactured according to the specifications of the rolling plant. It is not as stable as casting tool plates, but has a longer service life in highly processed components. Its non porous properties make it an ideal choice for injection molds. It is most commonly used in the thickness range of 100mm to 250mm, and can also be rolled to a thickness of 400mm.

cast tooling plate

The cast aluminum alloy tool plate is made of fine-grained aluminum alloy. It has no internal stress, making it a material with internal stability. Minimal movement during processing. It can provide good dimensional stability even after a large number of machining operations, with minimum or no deformation.

The thickness tolerance of cast aluminum tool plate is +/-. 005, the machined surface has excellent flatness, and both sides are protected by PVC plastic. In terms of quality and performance, aluminum alloy tooling and jig plates provided by Chalco can be compared with Mic-6, ACP5080, ACP5080R, Alca5TM, ATP5TM, C520 and other international best-selling products. All products are complied with international product quality standards.Quick Quote
