What is a tooling plate?

Tooling plates and columns provide mounting or clamping surfaces for holding and positioning vises, clamps and workpieces during setup, manufacturing and dimensional inspection. Tooling plates are manufactured from a variety of materials, including: Aluminum. Cast Iron. Granite.

What is cast tooling plate?

Cast tooling plate is a continuous cast plate machined both sides to around 25 microinch, then thermally stress relieved. This version offers the highest thickness tolerance of any aluminium plate along with extremely good stability. It comes with great welding, anodizing and corrosion resistance.

What is Jig plate?

Tool and Jig plate is a machined product, with flat surfaces and a surface finish equal to 32 micro-inches or better on both sides (top and bottom). It is readily machined with very little distortion. Using proper aluminum machining methods, tolerances in the thousandths can be maintained.

What is aluminum tool plate?

Aluminum Cast Tool & Jig plate is vertical cast, stress-relieved, machined plate providing sound dimensional stability with minimal or no distortion even after extensive machining operations. Cast Aluminum Plates/ Cast Tool & Jig Plate have a precision machined surface for superior flatness, flat within .

What is aluminum cast plate?

Aluminum Plate Cast, also known as MIC-6, is normally used for tooling and base plates. Cast plate offers exceptional stability and consistency between plates. It has superior flatness and dimensional tolerances on the thickness. Most of our aluminum cast plate stock is available in full size and custom cut lengths.

What is aluminum cast tooling plate?

What is aluminum cast tool & jig plate? It is a high-quality, accurately machined aluminum plate that has received a thermal stress relieving treatment to provide dimensional stability during machining.

What is cast aluminum plate?

What is 7000 series aluminum?

The 7000 series alloys (Al-Zn-Mg-(Cu)) have the highest strength of all aluminum alloys. The 7005 Al-4.0-5.0Zn-1.0-1.8 Mg) and 7075 (Al-5.1-6.1Zn-2.1-2.9 Mg-(1.2-2.0Cu)) alloys are used to produce frames. 7075 aluminum alloy is also widely used in the aero industry.
