Optimised conventional processing and compositions of aluminium plates as well as a new processing route for thick high strength aluminium plates

ALCAN has developed special alloy with high yield strength and design methodology for aluminium moulds. Optimised conventional processing and compositions of aluminium plates specifically dedicated to the mould industry were developed. Their yield strength amounts to 500 MPa at a thickness of a 500 mm plate. Furthermore, new processing route for thick high strength aluminium plates specifically dedicated to the mould industry with a yield strength of 600 MPa for a 1000 mm plate with very low through-thickness variations were developed.
