Grade Summary: Also known by tradenames MIC-6 Cast, K-100 Cast, and ALCA PLUS Cast, Cast Aluminum Tool & Jig Plate is produced from a fine-grain aluminum alloy which is free from internal stresses. This material is internally stable, which assures minimum movement during machining. Tool & Jig plate is a machined product, with flat surfaces and a surface finish equal to 32 micro-inches or better on both sides. It is readily machined with very little distortion. Cast Aluminum Tool & Jig Plate is used where strength is not a requirement, but minimal machining distortion along with flatness is required. This material is non-heat treatable. Cast Aluminum Tool & Jig Plate has electrical conductivity of 36% of copper.
Typical Applications: Assembly jigs and fixtures, welding fixtures, hydro press form blocks, drill jigs, templates, vacuum chucks, index tables, printing machinery components, automotive tooling, aircraft components, electronic components, vacuum chambers, rubber and plastic molds, prototypes, medical instrumentation, foundry patterns, food machinery components, packing machinery, CNC routing tables, circuit printers, etc. Used in aluminum non-strength applications where stability and flatness is required.
