8mm aluminium plate
8mm aluminium plate belongs to medium thickness aluminum plate
In the aluminum industry, the thickness is usually measured in mm. Thickness below 1mm belongs to thin plate, and thickness between 1mm-8mm belongs to common specification plate; while over 8mm becomes medium-thick aluminum plate. This classification is mainly based on the basis of processing. For example, the thickness within 8mm can be processed by cold rolling equipment, and the cost is low; while the thickness above 8mm must be manufactured using hot rolling equipment. 8mm aluminium plate is the same.
8mm aluminum plate medium thickness aluminum plate application
8mm aluminium plate is a kind of medium thickness aluminum plate. The main products of medium thick aluminum plates are 1xxx, 2xxx, 3xxx, 5xxx, 6xxx, 7xxx series aluminum alloys. 8mm aluminium plate is used in ships, automobiles, construction machinery, pressure vessels and other fields. The “1+1” production line put into production by aluminum sheet manufacturer Mingtai Aluminum produces medium thick plates, ultra-wide and ultra-thick aluminum plates, and can produce all alloys of the 1-8 series. The width of 8mm aluminium plate is up to 2650mm, the width of coil is 1650mm, the thickness of coil is up to 3mm, and the production capacity is 200,000 tons/year.
Thickness is related to the price of 8mm aluminium plate
The relationship between the thickness of the aluminum plate and the price: the thickness range of the aluminum plate is directly related to the price. The most reasonable price is the commonly used thickness, that is, the thickness between 1.0-8.0mm (including 8mm aluminium plate) is the most suitable price. Because the relatively thin aluminum plate machining process is relatively cumbersome, the price is relatively high. The 8mm or more must be processed by hot rolling after ingot processing, and certain losses will be generated during the ingot process. At the same time, the price of hot rolling equipment is relatively high, and the price of the hot rolled ultra-thick aluminum plate is relatively high.
Factors affecting the price of 8mm aluminium plate
There are many factors affecting the price of 8mm aluminium plate, mainly three factors. Here is a brief introduction.
First: the price of aluminum ingots. The price of aluminum ingots is a direct factor affecting the price of 8mm aluminum plate. The price of non-ferrous aluminum ingots in the Yangtze River is changing every day and is unpredictable. This directly affects the price of aluminum plates.
Second: alloy. The price of aluminum plate of each alloy series is different, for example, the price of 1 series and 6 series alloys will be much different.
Third: specifications. The aluminum plate price of ordinary thickness specifications is not high, but the ultra-wide specifications are not necessarily. The wider the aluminum plate, the higher the price, so if there are no special requirements, it is recommended to choose the regular width.
