Cast Aluminum Tooling Plate

Reduced Part Movement During Machining

Cast aluminum tooling plate is typically produced using an aluminum alloy that is fine-grained which results in minimal internal stresses. This results in flatter materials and less part movement during machining. TCI Precision Metals is a value-added distributor of cast aluminum tooling plate.  We source mill-direct and process the material to your exact specifications, delivering Machine-Ready Blanks that are ready to go from receiving directly into your machining centers.  

Cast aluminum tooling plate is one-third the weight of steel making for easier handling and installation; the downside is, it provides less strength and is not heat treatable.  The electrical conductivity of this metal is 29% (I.A.C.S.)
