Thick Aluminum Plate Cutting

Aluminum Plates, Precision-Cut to Any Size

Thick Aluminum Plate Up to 12 Inches Thick

Industries and home metalworkers alike use aluminum plate in a variety of alloys for countless applications. When you need thick aluminum plates of one inch or more, it can be hard to find a supply that meets your requirements because typical saws aren’t designed to cut plates that thick. Even if a saw can cut through thick aluminum plates, the plates are susceptible to poor dimensional tolerances and surface finishes because of the cutting difficulty of the material.

To better meet the needs of our customers looking for thick aluminum plate, Industrial Metal Service has added the MetlSaw NF12-T12 to our shop. This saw allows us to rapidly cut aluminum plates up to 12 inches thick with a high degree of precision. No matter what size aluminum plate you’re looking for, we have the tools and capability to handle it.

Thick Aluminum Plate for Any Application

Thick aluminum plate is useful for heavy-duty structural applications requiring strong, thick-walled material. It’s used for storage tanks in many industries, in part because some aluminum alloys become tougher at low temperatures. Thick aluminum plate is especially useful for aluminum machining processes where thick workpieces are milled down to size.

Some of the applications of thick aluminum plate include:

  • Low-temperature pressure vessels.
  • Fuel tanks.
  • Marine hulls.
  • Automotive structural sections.
