The production process of aluminum plate
The production process of aluminum plate mainly includes the steps of raw material preparation, molten aluminum smelting, casting, rolling, cutting and surface treatment.
- Raw material preparation: select high-purity aluminum ingots as raw materials, and perform pretreatment on them, such as removing surface oxides and impurities.
- Smelting molten aluminum: Put the pretreated aluminum ingot into the melting furnace for heating to melt it into molten aluminum. During the smelting process, alloying elements such as copper, zinc, magnesium, etc. can be added as needed to adjust the properties of the aluminum plate.
- Casting: Pour the molten aluminum into the casting mold, and through the process of cooling and solidification, the molten aluminum gradually turns into a solid aluminum billet.
- Rolling: The aluminum billet is put into a rolling mill for rolling. The rolling mill gradually flattens and elongates the aluminum billet through a series of rolling actions to form the required thickness and width of the aluminum sheet.
- Cutting: Cut the rolled aluminum plate according to the need to get the aluminum plate of the required size.
- Surface treatment: carry out surface treatment on the aluminum plate, such as oxidation, coating, etc., to improve its corrosion resistance and decorative effect.
The above is the general production process of aluminum plate, and the specific production process may vary due to different types and specifications of aluminum plate.
