Cast Machined Aluminium Plates Impact-700 (EN AW 7021)

Strength & Precision, our cast machined aluminium plates combines both! To use all the advantages of this precision-machined cast aluminium plates in applications requiring higher strength levels, we distribute this material. The high strength values combined with very low residual stresses are unique and reduce the production time significantly. In addition, it has very good corrosion resistance because of the temper of T79. For this reason, in the last few years, it became a better alternative to standard rolled plates as they increase production profitability.

Because of the time saved, you can reduce manufacturing costs by using this material, especially in mechanical engineering and jig making.

Comprehensive range of both Metric and Imperial sizes are available to order.
