Laser cut

Below are the ideal alloys for processing by laser cutting techniques:

ALUMINIUM-MAGNESIUM ALLOYS - 5XXX

_EN AW 5005 - H24 | Magnealtok 10 (1.0% Mg)

  • Normal quality plate, without guarantee of decorative anodising
  • Plate in anodisable and rough quality
  • Anodised plate in roll or industrial anodising

_EN AW 5052 - H111/H22 | Magnealtok 25 (2.5% Mg) Commercial alloy in USA

  • H111: Annealed and tractioned state
  • H22: 1/4 hard state

_EN AW 5454 - H24 | Magnealtok 28 (2.8% Mg)

  • H22: 1/2 hard state

_EN AW 5754 - H111/H12/H22/H32 | Magnealtok 30 (3.0% Mg) Commercial alloy in Europe

  • 0: Annealed state
  • H111: Annealed and tractioned state (This treatment is only recommended for bends greater than 90º due to its high elongation but it has the disadvantage of its low mechanical characteristics inside the aluminium alloys to be cut.)
  • H12/H22/H32: 1/4 hard state (This treatment is ideal because of its better mechanical characteristics whenever bending is done with a certain radius, since it is much more resistant and offers greater planimetry. For specific operations it can be supplied degreased so that it can be glued with adhesive to other materials)


NOTE: Up to 3% Magnesium, aluminium is malleable in states with high elongation. It is not recommended to cut plates that are obtained from rolls that have not been flattened under tension, because the plate "remembers" and tends to recover the curvature of the roll. It is recommended to start from formats supplied by the factory. 
It is very important to know the applications and their hardnesses because H111 state is soft and in certain cases it is better to use H12 state (up to 1.5 mm) or H22/H32 state (from 2.0 to 6.0 mm)

_EN AW 5086 - H111 | Magnealtok 40 (4.0% Mg)

  • H111: Annealed and tractioned state (For tankers and naval applications, except the hulls of semi-submerged vessels due to stress corrosion problems)

_EN AW 5083 - 0/H111/32/H116/H321 | Magnealtok 45 (4.5% Mg)

  • 0: Annealed state, for tanker bottoms
  • H111: Annealed and tractioned state (For tankers and naval applications, except the hulls of semi-submerged vessels due to stress corrosion problems)
  • H22/32: 1/4 hard state, for tipper lorries and lorry beds (with bending problems)
  • H116/H321: States required for the construction of hulls of vessels that are semi-submerged to avoid stress corrosion

ALUMINIUM-MAGNESIUM-SILICON ALLOYS - 6XXX

_EN AW 6061-T4/T6 | Simagaltok 61

  • T4: State with tempering without artificial maturation
  • T6: Alloy with tempering and artificial maturation

_EN AW 6082-T4/T6 | Simagaltok 82

  • T4: State with tempering without artificial maturation
  • T6: Alloy with tempering and artificial maturation

_EN AW 6063-T5 | Simagaltok 63

  • T5: Alloy with open-air tempering and artificial maturation

ALUMINIUM-MANGANESE ALLOYS - 3XXX

_EN AW 3003/3103/3005 | Almantok 03/13/05

  • Alloys with better characteristics than EN AW 1050 and 1200

ALUMINIUM-ZINC ALLOYS - 7XXX

_EN AW 7020-T6 | Alzintok 20

  • Alloy for products that have to be welded and where we do not want to lose mechanical properties in the weld area

_EN AW 7075-T6 | Alzintok 75

  • Alloy with high mechanical properties

NOTE: Alloys of 99.5% pure aluminium (EN AW 1050) or 99.0% (EN AW 1200) are not advisable due to beam reflection problems

NON-SLIP PLATES

Due to the fact that the majority of non-slip plates are made with 5754 alloy, the following models can be laser cut:

_ALU "TOPGRIP" | Plate with a higher grip surface, innovative design and easier to clean

_DIMPLE | Non-slip plate with fine grain

_CHEQUER | Non-slip chequer plate with 5 treads

_DUETO | Non-slip chequer plate with two treads

LACQUERED PLATES

All 5754 alloy lacquered plates can be cut, which is ideal because it does not lose as many mechanical properties as 1050 when polymerising the powder paint at 205º, thus maintaining very good planimetry.
