G.AL® Precision machined plates
Our concept of precision
Precision is – the accurate, precise general measurements such as thickness tolerance, flatness, parallelism and surface roughness, as well as, the focus on basic values such as the physical, metallurgical and technological properties.
The result is a highly reproducible maximum of internal and external precision for each single plate and each cutting. The basis for our G.AL® Precision Machined Aluminum Cast Plates are aluminum raw materials which were specially developed, based on our know-how and experience.
After a special heat-treatment and bypassing the conventional rolling process our aluminum slabs are divided up into plates on special band saws. It is a special designed sawing process with the focus not bring any stresses in the material. The result are extremely stress relieved sawn plates with a fine-grained, homogeneous micro structure and high strength values without any directional influences on the properties.
On stable portal milling machines with more than 79 in. wide milling heads we create precision, accuracy and the unique surface characteristic for our G.AL® plates. Afterwards each plate is inspected concerning its thickness, flatness, surface roughness and finally PVC– coated for surface protection.
The available range of precision plates covers all areas of application where precision in combination with higher strength values is required, such as construction of jigs and fixtures, all kind of gauges, tables, indexing and transfer plates, special purpose machines and all parts that justify the name “precision part”.
