6061 Aluminum Beam

6061 beam

Characteristics

6061 beam is easy to weld, cut, form, and machine, making it a good material for manufacturing beams to meet a variety of structural applications. With its high strength-to-weight ratio, the beams can be used for applications that would be inefficient or ineffective with heavier beams.

Applications

6061 beams are used to provide lightweight structural support for structures, raceways, frames and supports in buildings, enclosures and machine housings. Frames for truck trailers, automobiles, railcars and buses are constructed of 6061 beams.
