Whether 6061t6 aluminum plate will crack when bent 90 degrees?

6061 T6 aluminum plate has stable performance and high hardness. Customers often ask that if 6061t6 aluminum plate will crack when bent 90 degrees. What about 6061t6 aluminum plate when bent 90 degrees comparing with 3000 series and 5000 series?Can 6061t6 aluminum plate be bent?

6061t6 aluminum plate can be bent, but the hardness of the T6 system is relatively high, so the bending surface of 6061t6 aluminum is easy to wrinkle or crack when bending. While 6061-O aluminum plate is more suitable for bending, but because it is too soft, basically this temper is less been bent.

Aluminum plates are bent at an angle of 90 degrees, which is commonly used in 1 series, 3 series and 5 series. The bending of 6061t6 aluminum plate and the hardness of 7 series are too high. It is necessary to do annealing before the O state to bend. There is also the quality of the aluminum plate. Too thick aluminum plate is not easy to bend. We think about it and use a thin aluminum plate. The larger the bend R angle, the higher the success rate, so try to adjust the larger the bend R angle. The bending direction should be perpendicular to the direction of the aluminum plate texture and cannot be parallel.

The main alloying elements in 6061 aluminum alloy are magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect.
