6061 Aluminum Forging

Last Updated: 2023-12-14

Prodsuct Introdsuction

6061 is a precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy, whose majoy alloy elements are magnesium and silicon. It has good mechanical properties and exhibits good weldability. Together with 6063 aluminum, it is one of the most common alloys of aluminum for general-purpose use.

Prodsuct Parameter (specification)

Aluminium alloy 6061 is one of the most extensively used forging alloy of the 6000 series aluminium alloys.

Chemical Composition

Prodsuct feature and application

Aluminum alloy 6061 is suitable for hot forging. The billet is heated through an induction furnace and forged using a closed die forging process. Aluminum 6061 can be forged into any custom shapes. Typical 6061 aluminum forgings are: automotive parts, ATV parts, and industrial parts, ect.

6061-T6 aluminum properties include its structural strength and toughness. It is also offers good finishing characteristics and responds well to anodizing, including clear, clear and color dye, and hardcoat. 6061 aluminum alloy is also easily welded and joined. However, in its –T6 condition the welds may lose some strength, which can be restored by re-heat-treating and artificially aging.
