6061 Aluminum Alloy Forging (UNS A96061)
Anderson Shumaker is the industry expert in 6061 aluminum open die forging (UNS A96061). Producing top-quality 6061 aluminum forged parts, Anderson Shumaker's forging capabilities are not limited by size, shape or quantities. Anderson Shumaker frequently forges 6061 aluminum in rings, bars, blocks, discs, and more.
A precipitation hardening 6061 aluminum alloy, using magnesium and silicon as its major alloying elements, 6061 aluminum has good mechanical properties and has good weldability. It is the most common aluminum alloy for general purpose. Anderson Shumaker forges aluminum 6061 into all shapes including rings, bars, blocks, and more. Aluminum 6061 is capable of being forged, heat treated, annealed, cold worked, tempered, welded and formed.
6061 Aluminum Forged Parts Applications
Aircraft structures, marine use, structural and high pressure uses but its major use is in cans for food and beverage.
Aging: Artificial aging is most commonly used for this alloy. T-6 tempering is widely used for most applications, T-4 and also T-651 are used also.
