6mm thick aluminium sheet is a type of aluminium sheet with a thickness of 6 millimetres, or 0.236 inches. This thickness is considered to be relatively thick for aluminium sheet, as aluminium sheet thickness can range from as thin as 0.2mm to as thick as 500mm.
6mm thick aluminium sheet is commonly used in construction, transportation, and industrial settings. In construction, it can be used for creating walls, roofs, or floors for buildings. In transportation, it can be used for creating body panels, structures, or covers for vehicles. In industrial settings, it can be used for creating structures, such as machine guards, conveyor covers, and enclosures.
The 6mm thickness gives the sheet good strength and rigidity, and it is suitable for applications where a balance between strength and weight is needed. This thickness is also suitable for applications where the sheet will be exposed to high loads or impacts.
There are different grades, alloys and finishes of aluminium sheet, and the properties, strength and durability of the final product may vary depending on the grade, alloy, and finish chosen. Additionally, it is important to use the correct cutting and forming techniques when working with 6mm thick aluminium sheet, as it can be harder to cut and form than thinner sheets.
Bending 6mm thick aluminium sheet is possible, but it can be more challenging than bending thinner sheets because of its increased thickness and rigidity. The method and process for bending 6mm thick aluminium sheet metal is different than that of thinner sheet, due to its unique properties and characteristics.
One of the most common methods for bending 6mm thick aluminium sheet metal is using a press brake. A press brake is a machine that uses a punch and die to bend the sheet metal to the desired angle. This method is suitable for bending 6mm thick aluminium sheet and it can handle the thickness and rigidity of the sheet.
However, it’s worth noting that the maximum thickness that can be bent with a standard press brake is around 6mm, so it’s important to use a press brake that is capable of handling the thickness of the sheet.
Additionally, it’s important to use the correct bending radius, and to use the proper lubricant to prevent the sheet from cracking or breaking. The bending radius should be larger than the thickness of the sheet, and it’s also important to use a bending sequence that will reduce the amount of stress on the sheet.
It’s also important to use the right tools and equipment, and to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines to ensure that the sheet is not damaged during the bending process.
It’s worth noting that other methods such as roll-bending or hydroforming can be used to bend 6mm thick aluminium sheet, but they are less common and are not as widely available as press brake.
Our aluminium sheeting, also known as aluminium plate, is supplied in Grade 1050 with a blue/silver appearance and a reflective finish. A popular grade of sheet metal, Grade 1050 is suitable for general sheet metal applications that require moderate strength and light weight.
Aluminium metal plates are lightweight. In comparison to steel sheets, aluminium sheets weigh about a third less than steel sheets.
In addition, the metal is resistant to corrosion, which is a common problem with most metals when they are exposed to oxygen. Compared to other metals, aluminium is unique in that it naturally develops a protective oxide coating, which makes it highly resistant to corrosion.
Sheets made of aluminium are also ductile. Considering its density and low melting point, this material is easily bent and shaped to fit any shape.
Furthermore, it is 100% recyclable and sustainable. As a result of the recycling process, remelting aluminium sheet requires a minimal amount of energy.
There are many industries that can benefit from aluminium sheet. As a result of its lightweight nature, it is ideal for a variety of applications.
Due to its corrosion-resistant properties, aluminium sheet is also ideal for use in the construction of windows, roofs, and other projects. Food and beverage packaging often uses this material since it is impermeable and odourless.
