Aluminium sheet is widely used in food packaging due to it's low cost, ideal balance of strength and low weight, and corrosion resistance. The amazing ductility of aluminium makes it the perfect material for food and drink cans.
Automotive & Transportation
The strength, durability, and light weight of aluminium sheet mean it is the preferred material for many applications in the transport industry, especially where weight and cost is a concern. The low maintenance, corrosion resistance, and wide range of finishes available make aluminium sheet increasingly used for car and train bodywork.
Marine & Maritime
Some aluminium alloys are perfectly suited for use at sea and are widely used in the shipbuilding industry. The inherent protection against corrosion in a martime environment make aluminium sheet ideal for use in the superstructure of boats where the reduced weight is vital.
Perhaps more than any other metal, aluminium has come to dominate the aerospace industry, with various alloys of aluminium making up 80% of the unloaded weight of average aircraft. Aluminium sheet is widely used in the civilian and defence aerospace sectors for its fantastic strength to weight ratio and the fact it doesn't need painting, saving even more weight.
Architecture & Construction
Although rarely used in structural components, aluminium sheet is widely used in protective and aesthetic applications. Cladding, siding, and roofing are common uses, where the wide range of possible finishes for aluminium sheet are highly desirable, and the inherent protection offered against the elements give it an edge over other materials.
Appliances & Electronics
Household appliances increasingly use the aluminium sheet, thanks to the lighter weight and thermal behaviour, especially in fridges. Common electronics use aluminium sheet widely in their cases, with most mobile phones and laptops being made of aluminium thanks to the reduced weight compared to steel, ease of manufacture, and impressive structural strength.
The strength, lightweight, and ductility of aluminium sheet would already make it ideal for making cookware. Still, aluminium is also a fantastic conductor of heat, meaning it cooks food more evenly than some alternative metals.
Fabrication & Processing of Aluminium Sheet
Righton Blackburns provides fabrication services for aluminium sheet, including:
- Bench tooling
- Mitre cutting
- Plastic coating
- Tapping & drilling
We offer pre-painted, sublimation printing, pre-anodised, bright rolled finishes, and poly coating to protect surface finish for aluminium sheet.
Righton Blackburns' special finishes are widely used in the lighting, trophy, engraving, sign and architectural markets.
We have dedicated guillotines to produce finished blanks from aluminium sheet. With particular experience in the automotive industry, from automotive manufacturers to the industry’s main subcontractors.
We can provide cut to length blanks of aluminium sheet from the coil to customer-specified length and width requirements up to 1250mm wide. Blanking facilities are supported by a dedicated guillotine section which can provide blanks up to 4m.
Continuous investment in our processing facilities, such as the recently introduced 21 rolls computerised precision levelling system, guarantees high-quality cut blanks.
We offer an expert in-house CNC routing service as part of our state-of-the-art facilities. Taking technical drawings in either paper or computer file format to one-off or exactly repeatable high-volume product in a matter of days. Capable of handling 4000 x 2500mm aluminium sheet up to 20mm thick, we can cut, groove, chamfer, channel, engrave and drill any design. Solid relationships with several of Europe’s biggest tooling manufacturers mean we can source the best possible tools to produce our products.
