Alplan®, precision plates
When machining aluminium, there are several challenges such as part distortion, deformation, or unaesthetic finish. Those issues increase the amount of scrap and part rejection, as well as set-up and machining time, overall resulting in increased costs.
Using the right aluminium plate for machining jobs will solve any problem, from small or large series, complex or asymmetric parts, final tolerance, aesthetic finish, etc. Constellium has developed Alplan® - a family of rolled and pre-milled aluminum plates - fully optimized in terms of material properties allowing machine shops to decrease machining cycle time.
