Aluminium sheet is a very versatile product, not only for the characteristics that it can be given in the cold and hot rolling mill, but also because of its suitability to a wide range of applications and processes. Its surface can be treated in many ways: painted, plated, polished, colored, coated, laminated, anodized, etched or textured. In addition, the sheet can be worked in different ways – sheared, sawed and drilled – and it is easily formed to the point that it can be bent, corrugated, drawn or stamped. Its application include such familiar products as: light bulbs; beverage and food cans; cooking utensils; domestic appliances; awnings and blinds; coatings, roofs, gutters and panels for residential, commercial and industrial use; road signs, license plates; heat exchangers; structures and exteriors of cars; panels of trucks, trailers and vans; small boat hulls and aircraft linings.
Aluminium sheet processing: hot rolling mill
How aluminium sheet can be machined? Its thickness is obtained with a rolling mill. The process usually starts with a hot rolling, then ends with a cold rolling. Hot rolling mill gives aluminium sheets several characteristics: surface quality, flexibility and oxidation performance, mechanical and ductile properties.
The production process of aluminum sheet
The production cycle of Laminazione Sottile starts with foundry, passing through hot and cold rolling, annealing, superficial treatments and slitting. This process is necessary to guarantee several products – aluminium coils, sheets and circles – in different alloys and dimensions.
