Corrosion resistant, strong, and durable, laser cut 6061 aluminum is ideal for a wide variety of applications across automotive, aerospace and robotics. 6061 aluminum is also known for its weldability while maintaining strong impact loading performance. So whatever your next custom laser cut project is, 6061 checks all the boxes.
Our laser cut 6061 aluminum is commonly found in structural applications where toughness and corrosion resistance are of high importance. That’s pretty typical for aluminum alloys in general, but what makes this 6061 series stand out is its heat-treatability. The heat-treating process, called precipitation hardening, further strengthens the alloy without robbing it of key properties.
Many of our aluminum alloys are able to withstand tremendous amounts of vibration (also known as fatigue strength) making them perfectly suited for high-impact applications such as transportation and robotics. For any of these applications 6061 aluminum is a good middle of the road alloy, pairing the strength of 7075 with the malleability of 5052.
We guarantee awesome quality parts. If you’re not 100% happy, we’ll give you a refund or remake on the spot – no questions, no hassle.
Choose anodizing for lightweight corrosion resistance. Our convenient Class II anodizing service adds durability and character to your laser-cut parts.
For flush surfaces, there’s countersinking. Increase the lifespan of your part and preserve your hardware from long-term wear.
Let SendCutSend and PEM fasteners set your parts up for success with self-clinching nuts, studs, and stand-offs.
Custom powder coating gives your laser and waterjet cut parts a bold, long-lasting finish and protective layer which provides corrosion, oxidation, and damage resistance.
Utilizing specialized, automated equipment, we precisely laser-cut a hole, create some threading, and send you on your way with your completed part.
