Behind the scenes at BIKAR. Simply gigantic. At our machining center, we machine in a different dimension. A giant cutting head 106.3 inches in diameter machines pre-sawn aluminum plates flat, ready for tooling.
Working flat out:
we make sure that surfaces stay flat
Step by step from block to plate
Sawing to size
This is our raw material:
Aluminum blocks with the following dimensions:
236.2 and 157.5 x 64.9 x 23.6 inches
236.2 and 157.5 x 86.6 x 23.6 inches
125.9 x 64.9 x 39.4 inches
Whether horizontal or vertical, we can saw almost any dimension.
The pre-sawn raw plates are machined flat to tolerances measured in tenths of a millimetre.
These precision-cut plates are then covered on both sides with a protective film to ensure the surface stays absolutely flawless.
We use a state-of-the-art saw plant to cut everything to your precise requirements. From the size of a postage stamp to a telephone booth – whether cubes, plates, blanks, rings or parts from drawings. We have a wide range of options available.
FORMODAL® plates are aluminum alloys that have been developed specially for tool making, mold making and model making. They range from cast materials given special thermal treatments (FORMODAL® 023 and FORMODAL® 030 flat) to high-strength, rolled or forged plates (FORMODAL® 060 and FORMODAL® BM-400). BIKAR is the partner that you can rely on.
