High quality aluminum plate that allows high-speed metal removal with very little distortion. Top and bottom surfaces are plastic protected and precision machine finished to 20 micro-inches typical. Thickness tolerance is + .005. The result is a cast aluminum plate that meets the challenge for product accuracy demanded in today's industry. Developed for applications where dimensional stability is required. Applications include assembly jigs and fixtures, gages, indexing tables, electronic mounting plates, aircraft an automotive tooling, molds for plastic and rubber parts, medical instrumentation, robotics, routing tables, printing and pharmaceutical machinery.
