M82 Machining

A Guide to M82 Machined Parts: Properties, Applications and Design Considerations

What is M82?

M82 or M82 precision plate as it’s sometimes known, is a kind of aluminium plate that comes with a guaranteed tolerance on the thickness. 

To achieve the thickness, the plate undergoes levelling and a controlled stretch operation.

The alloy used is 6082 (T651) and therefore many of the properties apply to both.

Main Attributes of aluminium M82:

  • Consistent machinability
  • Linished finish
  • Aesthetically pleasing surface finish
  • Superior flatness
  • Gauge and flatness tolerances to tighter than 0.7EN specifications
  • No surface finishing required – anodises well
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Medium strength
  • Maintains stability after machining
  • Cost effective - little to no waste
