Aluminij Industries offers a wide range of aluminium alloys all held up to the European standard EN 573-3:2013 Aluminium and aluminium alloys – Chemical composition and form of wrought products. Aluminij PLM13 series billets are produced by semi-continuous vertical casting using Wagstaff technology-AirSlip (Air Casting Process). Billets are further extruded into profiles, bars, and tubes of different shapes and for various applications. They can also be used to produce electrical conductors. The final application of billets depends on the alloy that the billets are cast in.
Materials from which our billets are cast include wrought alloys, with chemical composition stipulated by international standards. Aluminij offers homogenized AlMgSi billets from 6xxxx series, one of the most popular alloys with our customers are 6005, 6060, 6061, 6063 and 6082 alloys. 6xxx series provide a wide spectrum of alloys with specific properties for our customers’ needs. Please feel free to contact our sales department regarding any inquiry about any of our 6xxx alloys.
Billets are homogenized in continuous Homogenizing furnaces from HERTWICH, which are also equipped with a UT inspection of the billets. A fully automated and controlled process of UT inspection and gradual cooling of the billets provide a high quality of the final product.
To ensure our billets match international standards for chemical composition, metal from every casting is tested with ARL Metal Analyzers.
The maximum casting length of our billets is 7 meters with diameters as presented in the table below.
