Use of aluminum strip
There are many uses for aluminum strips, such as: aluminum-plastic composite pipes, cables, optical cables, transformers, heaters, blinds, and so on.
Grade 1060 requires high corrosion resistance and formability, but the strength is not high, and chemical equipment is its typical use.
Grade 1100 is used for processing and requires good formability and high corrosion resistance, but does not require high strength parts. For example, chemical products, food industry equipment and storage containers, sheet metal processing parts, deep drawing or spinning concave vessels, welding parts, heat exchangers, printing plates, nameplates, reflective appliances.
Grade 3004 sheet, thick plate, stretch tube, extruded tube. As long as it is used for all-aluminum cans, it requires higher parts than the 3003 alloy, chemical production and storage devices, sheet metal parts, building baffles, cable ducts, sewers, and various lighting parts.
Grade 3003 strip, foil, slab, stretch tube, extruded tube. Type, rod, wire. Cold-worked bars, cold-worked wire, rivet wire, forgings, foils. The heat sink material is mainly used for processing, which requires good forming properties, high corrosion resistance, or good solderability parts, such as tanks and tanks for transporting liquids, pressure tanks, storage devices, heat exchangers, chemical equipment, Aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipelines, reflectors, kitchen equipment, washing machine cylinders, rivets, welding wire.
Grade 5052 This alloy has good formability, corrosion resistance, candle resistance, fatigue strength and medium static strength. It is used in the manufacture of aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipes, as well as sheet metal parts for transportation vehicles and ships, instruments, street lamp brackets and Rivets, hardware, etc.
Aluminum belt processing technology
The aluminum strip is an aluminum deep-processed product formed by aluminum coil slitting processing, and is an important raw material in the industry.
According to the alloying elements contained in the aluminum strip, the aluminum sheets are also divided into 8 series. However, the currently used series are the 1000, 3000, 5000 and 8000 series.
According to the annealing state of the aluminum strip, the aluminum strip can be further divided into full soft, semi-hard and fully hard. At present, the most commonly used ones should belong to the all-soft series, because the O-state is easier to stretch and bend. The main processing equipment of the aluminum strip is the slitting unit. Of course, the strip processing equipment is universal, and the copper coil can also be processed. The processed product is called copper strip.
At present, the raw materials for electronic products are no longer purely dependent on copper strips. Since the conductivity of aluminum is only lower than that of copper, the replacement of copper strips by aluminum strips is becoming a popular trend in the world.
