Aluminium Plate

Aluminium Plate is highly resistant to corrosion, very ductile and has a reflective finish. It is roughly 1/3 the weight of mild , so that it is ideal for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required but weight is an issue. Aluminium plate is straightforward to form or bend using hand tools or a bending brake. It also can be cut using a jigsaw with the correct blade, on a guillotine. Aluminium plate can be used for a wide range of applications from tooling plate, structural, general engineering, transport, agricultural, architectural, truck bodies, trailer parts ship and boat building.

LIONS aluminium provides aluminium alloy products of Series 1000, Series 2000, Series 3000, Series 5000, Series 6000, Series 7000 and Series 8000 with different sizes. Main products include aluminium sheet, aluminium plate, aluminium foil, aluminium strip, aluminium coil, aluminium clad foil, aluminium checkered plate, CTP plate stock, PS plate stock, aluminium electrode capacitor foil, foil stock, deep-draw stock, brazing sheet, aluminium tread plate, etc.

Common widths of aluminium plate are 1000mm, 1250mm and 1500mm. Common lengths are 2000mm, 2500mm and 3000mm. Aluminium plate can be cut as per client’s requirements. Our aluminium plate has a wide range of thickness 3mm up to 100mm. Thinner than 3mm is considered to be aluminium sheetWith an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio and natural corrosion resistance, aluminium plate/sheet is popular for a broad range of applications. Aluminium sheet and plate are used in everything from aerospace and aircraft manufacturing to beverage packaging, cryogenic storage, siding, gutters, and roofing for homes.

Advantages of Aluminium Plate

  • Lightweight-approximately one-third the density of
  • High Strength-some alloys can be substantially strengthened by work or by heat treatment
  • Corrosion Resistance-varies depending on the alloy and the best resist marine exposure
  • Non-toxic-often used in contact with food
  • Workability-easily formed, machined and welded
  • Reflectivity-bright finish options
  • Non-magnetic and non-sparking
  • High electrical conductivity
  • High thermal conductivity

Quality Requirements of Aluminium Plate Cut to Size

  • The surface should be clean and free of cracks and oxidized debris.
  • The surface of the aluminium plate is allowed to have defects such as indentation, scratches, and roller indentation, but the depth cannot exceed the allowable negative deviation of the aluminium plate, and the minimum thickness should be guaranteed.
  • The falling part with cladding bubbles is allowed.
  • It is allowed to remove defects within the range of thickness differences.
  • Custom to meet all your reasonable requirements.

Factors Affecting The Price of Aluminium Plate

There are many factors affecting the price of aluminium plate, mainly 3 factors:

  1. The price of aluminium . The price of aluminium is a direct factor affecting the price of aluminium plate. The price of non-ferrous aluminium in the Yangtze River is changing every day and is unpredictable. This directly affects the price of aluminium plates.
  2. Alloy. The price of aluminium plate of each alloy series is different, for example, the price of 1 series and 6 series alloys will be much different.
  3. Specifications. The aluminium plate price of ordinary thickness specifications is not high, but the ultra-wide specifications are not necessarily. The wider the aluminium plate, the higher the price, so if there are no special requirements, it is recommended to choose the regular width.

Key points in quality control – Aluminium Casting

Aluminium Plate Manufacturing Factory

For making high-quality aluminium plate and sheet, aluminium slab quality is very important. It determines the final product quality. Using the advanced equipment and optimized process to improve the quality of aluminium alloy slab is the foundation of high-performance aluminium alloy products.

LIONS has a wide range of cooperation with many world-class companies on material design, melt processing, casting process optimization, etc. It comprehensively helps us to improve the quality of the aluminium alloy slab and ensures our ability to provide high-performance aluminium alloy slab products for different industry customers.

All the melting and holding furnaces are supplied by GAUTSCHI company. At the same time, LIONS introduces full sets of AL-EMS, refining units and casting machines. In casting house, combustion media is natural gas. All production lines are equipped with AL-EMS, in-furnace refining and on-line refining devices, etc. The computer-controlled melting system can realize automatic combustion control to ensure the temperature uniformity of aluminium melt and furnace chamber air and the stability of furnace pressure. Operation safety of furnace is also improved accordingly. To ensure the aluminium melt flow smoothly into the mould with uniform temperature, We choose the tilting type holding furnace, which is good for producing high-quality slab. As for the casting, LIONS aluminium corporation uses the hydraulic semi-continuous casting machine to ensure the controllability and stability of casting process.

The Difference Between Aluminium Plate and Aluminium Sheet

Basically, Aluminium plate and aluminium sheet are almost the same, the only difference is thickness. Aluminium plate is thicker than an aluminium sheet,  both plate and sheet come in many forms including diamond, checkered, expanded, perforated and painted.

Equipments For Hot Rolling and Cold Roling

Hot Rolling

LIONS purchased 1 +1 +3 hot rolling mills from Germany, which can satisfy the production requirements of aerospace plates, and can produce the highest level plates for, shipbuilding, high-speed train and large-size container. Besides, we brought 1 +5 hot rolling mills. All the hot finish rolling mills adopt the eve flatness control technology, which makes the mills have the best flatness control ability in the world and can supply the best shape hot-rolled strip.

To manufacture high quality, over-dimension heavy and medium aluminium alloy plate applied in aerospace, shipbuilding and engineering industries, the first-class equipment and process are inevitably necessary. LIONS introduces modern and advanced hot rolling mills, stretching machine, high precision quenching furnace, ageing furnace and water immersion type detection devices from abroad, which are a strong guarantee of high-quality manufacturing products.

Cold Rolling

We purchased 3 sets of cold rolling mill machine (2 sets of the single-strand mill and 1 set of the three-stand tandem mill) from Germany. In addition, we introduce world-leading technologies and equipment, wholly imported vertical intelligent storage and logistic management system, and finishing lines which fulfil all the requirements on manufacturing various kinds of aluminium plate, sheet and strip products. The finishing lines include trimming line, tension levelling line, air-floating type quenching line, coating line and packaging line.
