AL Cam and Groove with T6 Heat Treatment

Cam and Groove are one of the most recognized types of quick disconnect fittings in the world. Including the characteristics of stainless steel, aluminum alloy, brass, plastic as the main material, it can be used in various industries in various countries. Especially suitable for scenarios that require frequent replacement, such as tank trucks, etc.
Among all materials, aluminum alloy occupies the leading position in the market due to its advantages of lightweight, durability and so on. However, there are many low-quality works that run counter to this spirit. Today about 30% of manufacturers sell aluminum alloy cams without Heat Treatment in Europe. This will expose the low hardness of the original aluminum alloy. There is no doubt that this will lead to more damage and more frequent replacement. And will undoubtedly greatly increase the cost of use.
Of course, the use of T5 heat treatment can reduce the cost of heat treatment, so that products barely meet certain standards. Different from non optimal suppliers, we strictly adopt T6 heat-treated aluminum products in SME Company. It is not difficult to see that the microstructure of T6 heat treated aluminum alloy is more stable under the display of detector. Heat treatment precipitation hardening will make the alloy elements precipitate into the grains in the form of Mg2Si and al2cu fine coherent particles in the aging stage, making the alloy structure more stable. After the improvement of physical and mechanical properties, the hardness and ductility have been improved obviously, which effectively solves the defects of easy deformation and corrosion during the use of the product.
