Performance characteristics of 6061 aluminum bar

6061 aluminum rod is the representative product of 6000 series aluminum rod. The main components of 6000 series aluminum rods include magnesium and silicon. Therefore, it has the characteristics of both 4000 series and 5000 series.

  • The strength of 6061 aluminum bar is close to that of steel, but its weight is much lighter. It is a strong and durable alloy. It is easy to drill, machine and saw.
  • The main alloy components of 6061 aluminum are magnesium and silicon, so it has strong corrosion resistance, moisture resistance, stress resistance and crack resistance. This means that this material type is easy to form and weld.
  • This alloy can be easily anodized and has good molding and finishing properties.
  • The machinability is good under the hard T4 and T6 conditions. It is obviously not easy to machine in the annealing and tempering state.
  • It is easy to cold work and shape under annealing conditions. Stamping, bending, spinning and drawing can be easily completed using standard methods.
  • 6061 has good machinability and good weldability. All commonly used welding techniques can be used for welding. Generally, after welding, the properties near the weld are the same as 6061-O, and the strength loss is about 80%. The material can be reheated to restore the T4 or T6 temper of the whole workpiece. After welding, the material will naturally age and recover some strength.

The production of 6061 aluminum barQuick Quote

It begins with solution heat treatment at 990°F and water quenching, followed by precipitation hardening at 320°F for 18 hours and subsequent air cooling at 350°F for 8 hours. Hot forging is performed within the temperature range of 900°F to 750°F, and hot working can be carried out between 700°F and 500°F. Cold working is most suitable in the O temper condition. Annealing is done at 775°F for 2 to 3 hours, with controlled cooling to 500°F and air cooling. The aging process, leading to the T6 temper, entails heat treatment at 350°F for 8 hours. Tempering is not applicable to this process.

Dimensions and weights of 6061 aluminum barQuick Quote

Calculation of the weight of the aluminum round rod: πR2*h×0.0000027 (3.1415*the square of the radius of the aluminum rod*the length of the aluminum rod*density, the unit of the radius length is mm).

Calculation of the weight of the aluminum square rod: side A*side B*0.0027*h (side length*side length*density*aluminum rod length), the unit is mm.

If the length is short, the cutting loss shall be increased.

The length and width of the cut shall have a tolerance of 1-3mm.
