Laser Cut 6061 T6 Aluminum

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.

Custom parts starting from $29 per order.

Laser cut 6061 aluminum, strong, and light

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.

Used in a variety of applications

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.
