Aluminum Plaques Fabrication

You can choose from many alloys of aluminum for the base of your plaque. Next, we can manufacture the plaque design using several techniques, like:

  • CNC precision tooling
  • Etching
  • Laser engraving
  • Embossing

We utilize cutting-edge computerized CNC milling machines to take or carve away any extra metal, which is subsequently recycled. This allows for extreme precision. During etching, your plaque’s design is cut into a chemical-resistant mask that is then put onto aluminum, which is immersed in a substance that eats away at the exposed metal. Advanced laser engraving burns the design into aluminum. Embossing presses and stamps it into the surface, resulting in a fast production rate—ideal for large orders.

After, the plaque can be finished, anodized, and painted once the design has been applied to it.

How Does Aluminum Plaques Compare To Bronze Plaques?

Bronze Plaque

A cast bronze plaque has the advantage of being extremely durable. Copper and tin make up the majority of the alloy that is bronze.

It is stronger and tougher than other materials, with stainless steel being the sole exception.

Because of this, bronze plaques are a great option for outdoor signage and monuments.

The bronze plaque is protected further by a clear lacquer coating and is durable in various weather situations.

Bronze plaques hold up well to strong foot activity if you’re searching for a plaque that will be positioned beneath the foot.

Bronze is the most classic plaque material, giving your product an appearance of strength, distinction, and class.

Since a real chemical patina lasts longer than paint or stain, it is applied to bronze plaques to give them their distinctive sheen.

Advantages of bronze plaque:

  • The Strength and resilience
  • Looks traditional and timeless
  • The capacity for exquisite detail
  • Lustrous finish and chemical patina
