alimex UK (Precision in Aluminium)Limited

alimex is the European leader in the manufacture and supply of surface machined aluminium cast tooling plates (ACP5080P) and aluminium cast block for the mould making industry (ACP5080R) with a know-how stretching over 30 years. This expertise allowed it to take part in pioneering development work in direct cooperation with aluminium smelters on new dimensions of cast blocks. The result is low tension aluminium cast blocks for moulding with a thickness of max. 1000 mm (39") and an individual unit weight up to 11.400 kg (25.000 lbs).

The company manufactures high tolerance cast and machined plates and can supply full size plates or cut plates as well as circles and rings. These are made from cast blocks or rolled plates of various aluminium alloys. Any required size within the available thickness and plate sizes is possible.
