Aluminium 1060 forging is the process of shaping metal by hammering or pressing it into high-temperature dies. It mainly consists of aluminium, with small amounts of manganese and copper added for increased strength and formability. This gives it higher mechanical properties than pure aluminium and makes it an ideal material in many applications such as aerospace, automotive, medical, etc.
Aluminium 1060 Forging has a high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent conductivity, corrosion resistance and malleability. It is commonly used for low-weight parts that must maintain structural integrity, such as aerospace applications. Also, it is ideal for ornamental components, which require a combination of strength and beauty due to its low melting point, ease of grinding/cutting and lack of toxicity during burning.
