Now more and more appliances choose to use aluminum alloy frame for electrical appliances, such as the common iPhone and other mobile phones that use aluminum alloy bodies. This aluminum alloy coloring process is anodized. This process uses anodizing to color the aluminum alloy surface to form a strong oxide film, and then allows the mobile phone aluminum alloy surface to generate color and form a protective film.
In the past, the outer frames of the home appliances we used were generally painted with iron or stainless steel, so the home appliances used to be bulky and heavy. Now the home appliances are getting lighter and thinner. It’s not that the quality is getting worse, but it is more about the user experience and choosing a lighter and more beautiful material. The aluminum alloy profile has become a very good alternative. The aluminum material is light and has high hardness, which can easily carry the weight of the main body of the appliance.
Reasons for using aluminum alloy frame for electrical appliances
An aluminum alloy frame for electrical appliances is intended to fix the main body of the appliance and protect the appliance. The aluminum alloy frame is generally rectangular, and the size and thickness of the frame are customized according to the size and weight of the appliance. Reaching the refrigerator door, as small as the mobile phone frame, now use aluminum alloy profiles. Even the TVs, which are said to be borderless, use aluminum alloy frames. It can be seen how widely the aluminum alloy frame is used in household appliances.
The aluminum alloy frame for electrical appliances is so popular not only because of their lightness but also because they are easy to form and have low processing costs. The surface can be treated in various ways to make it more corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant, easy to care for, and beautiful generous. Such as anodizing, electrostatic spraying, electrophoresis, wire drawing, sand surface treatment, etc. The aluminum alloy mobile phone shell after the sand surface treatment has become the most popular material on the market.
The aluminum frame for electrical appliances is generally made of 6063 aluminum alloy (aluminum, magnesium, silicon alloy), which has good plasticity, maintainability, and welding performance. It is also one of the most widely used aluminum profiles and is widely used in industrial production, construction, and home improvement.
