What is the classification of Aluminum Ingot?

01. 16, 2020

Aluminium is a silver-white metal, which is ranked third in the earth's crust after oxygen and silicon. The density of aluminum is relatively small, only 34.61% of iron and 30.33% of copper, so it is also called light metal. Aluminum is the non-ferrous metal in the world that is second only to steel in terms of production and use. The density of aluminum is only 2.7103g / cm3, which is about 1/3 of the density of steel, copper or brass. Because aluminum is light, it is often used in the manufacture of land, sea, and air vehicles such as cars, trains, subways, ships, airplanes, rockets, and spacecraft to reduce its own weight and increase its loading capacity. With the widespread application of Aluminum Ingot, the classification of aluminum ingots has become more and more refined. As an Aluminum Ingot Supplier, share with you.

Aluminum Ingot

Aluminum ingots often used in industry can be roughly divided into three categories according to the content of aluminum in aluminum ingots: high-grade pure aluminum, industrial high-purity aluminum, and industrial pure aluminum. Regardless of the type of aluminum ingot, the lowest aluminum content in the three types of aluminum ingots is also above 98%. The content of aluminum in the composition of aluminum ingots is particularly high, which shows that the composition of aluminum ingots and aluminum is not much different! Aluminum ingots are divided into three types: aluminum ingots, high-purity aluminum ingots, and aluminum alloy ingots according to different compositions; they can be divided into strip ingots, round ingots, plate ingots, and T-shaped ingots according to their shapes and sizes.

Because of the good ductility and heat dissipation performance of aluminum, it is widely used in aviation equipment and its weight is relatively light. As a major country in the aluminum alloy industry, the application of aluminum alloy profiles is not limited to this. The continuous evolution of technology will eventually promote the maturity and improvement of aluminum alloy and aluminum ingot related industries.

Different types of aluminum ingots will have different quality in different application areas. Some are used to produce precision instruments, and some are used to produce general doors and windows, so the uses are very different.

Aluminum ingots are a commonly used industrial material. The material is stable and easy to transport, but we should pay attention to the metal characteristics of aluminum ingots, such as the problem of shrinkage.

The requirements for the safety and aesthetic appearance of die-casting products are constantly increasing. Depending on the application, the quality of the part is evaluated differently. The shrinkage of aluminum ingot casting materials is generally given as an average percentage or as a percentage with a certain range of variation.

Therefore, we must pay attention to the shrinkage of aluminum ingots when using aluminum ingots to avoid quality problems.
