Aluminium Billets Manufacturers, Suppliers & Exporters
A billet is a length of metal that has a round or square cross-section, with an area less than 36 in2 (230 cm2). Billets are created directly via continuous casting or extrusion or indirectly via hot rolling an ingot or bloom. Billets are further processed via profile rolling and drawing. Final products include bar stock and wire.
Billet is a term tossed around frequently and loosely in cruiserland, but many people are confused about what billet actually is and why it’s usually expensive. Aluminium billets is mainly used for various architectural purposes, building & construction, electrical and mechanical engineering works. Primary products are produced both in Romania and China in the form of ingots. In Romania, most of the primary aluminium is used to manufacture cast house products, including wire rod, billets and slabs.
Billet is simply a “bar of metal.” Billets can be made of magnesium or steel or iron or lead, but because of its light weight and relatively low cost (compared with other light metals such as magnesium and titanium), aluminum works best for cruising applications. However, since pure aluminum is a fairly soft metal, the aluminum most billet accessories are machined from is actually an alloy of aluminum and other metals.
In the 1950s the Aluminum Association adopted a four-digit numerical classification system for aluminum. The first digit, the six, states that this alloy contains aluminum, magnesium, and silicon; giving the alloy good formability, corrosion resistance, and strength. (If the first digit were a one, the metal would be more than 99 percent pure aluminum.) The zero means that special controls to limit particular impurities within the alloy were not incorporated (not a concern in motorcycle applications). The final two digits identify the particular alloy within the aluminum, magnesium, and silicon group.
Since billet aluminum parts start their lives as blocks of aluminum, the finished parts must be carved from these blocks.
The engineer creates the cutter tool list for their manufacturing material and the carving order that will result in the completed part (like a sculptor progressively removing aluminum from the billet).much of a piece of aluminum billet ends up in the recycling bin after a milling machine has extracted a part from within it. Billet-look or billet-like parts are usually cast items dipped in chrome.
