About Aluminum 6061
Aluminum 6061 is a strong, weldable, corrosion resistant alloy. It's commonly found in where high strength and light weight is needed, and was used to make the frame of the Space Shuttle as well as the armor and frame of the BattleBot Bite Force, sponsored and waterjet cut by Big Blue Saw. For the technically minded, the aluminum used in the sale will be the typical T6 hardness, which provides a good strength without being too brittle.
Aluminum 6061-T6 and waterjet cutting go together well. The low temperatures used in waterjet cutting mean that the heat treatment of the metal will not be affected and it will maintain its strength even after it is cut.
