5 Unusual Uses for a Metal Colander

Perforated aluminum has uses in every aspect of life. It is common to see perforated aluminum used as screen doors, window screens, decorative railings, room dividers, and many other places. One popular use for aluminum is in the construction of colanders. These colanders provide a way to strain vegetables, pasta, and other liquids quickly and efficiently. However, straining is not the only use for a colander. Consider the following unusual and creative uses for aluminum colanders in your home: Preventing grease splatters: In the kitchen, splattering grease can cause mess... Read More

Unusual Uses for Perforated Aluminum

Perforated aluminum is simply an aluminum sheet with a pattern of holes stamped into the metal. This makes the already-light metal even lighter, and has many practical uses in manufacturing, construction, and even household use. If you pay attention, you might be surprised at the places where you find perforated aluminum in places you would never have thought to expect it. Look for the useful metal performing the following somewhat unusual functions in your world: Drain covers: Drain covers in bathrooms, bathtubs, showers, and swimming pools are often made from...

Steve Jobs and Perforated Aluminum Sheets

2011 marked the death of one of the most celebrated innovators of recent history, Steve Jobs. Mr. Jobs is credited with revolutionizing several sectors of the consumer electronics industry as well as aspects of industries outside of personal computing, including the music and television industries. There's no doubt that Mr. Jobs's contribution to media and technology was major and lasting. Contributions with that kind of staying power tend to permanently establish the name of whoever made them, and despite the misgivings of critics and the conspicuousness of Mr. Jobs's character...

Why Perforated Aluminum is so Popular

I've talked already in several of the previous post about how perforated metal sheets are often used as architectural embellishments on buildings, both indoors and outdoors. They can be used to supplement the safety features of railings and fences (while simultaneously increasing their visual appeal), they can be installed as paneling on building interiors and exteriors and they can be used for an extensive variety of other purposes. Many different metals are used for architectural embellishment. Stainless steel is favored because of its strength and durability, brass is used because... Read More

5 Finishes for Perforated Aluminum

Perforated aluminum panels are simply sheets of aluminum metal that are full of small holes. The holes inside the aluminum sheet make the metal even lighter, and also allow light through the metal sheet. Perforated aluminum panels have a variety of uses, such as light-weight flooring, wall panels, fences, partitions, security gates, decorative fences or walls, and even protective barriers. Because of the wide range of uses for each perforated panel, most manufacturers provide different finishes providing customers with different looks to their aluminum panels. This allows the panels to... Read More

Perforated Aluminum

Perforated aluminum is aluminum that has been stamped or punched with holes in a sequence or pattern using a machine, a tool or a combination therein. Aluminum is so popular and frequently selected over other metals for use as a raw material for the creation of perforated metal sheets because it exhibits many desirable characteristics. Included among these are the qualities of durability, heat resistance, strength, corrosion resistance, rust resistance and recyclability. Perforated aluminum sheets are sold for use with and in a variety of different parts and products, and in general, they are vastly popular within the architectural, food and beverage, chemical and energy, automotive, furniture, filtration, HVAC, sound system, construction and material development industries. Applications in which perforated aluminum is used include, among others: acoustic panels, speaker covers, industrial cabinetry, acoustic panels, cheese graters, spoons, colanders, ladles, window and door screens, water screens, coffee screens, cement slurry screens, cinder screens, blast furnace screens, drain coverings, pipe guards, ventilation grilles, air filters, oil filters, retail displays, indoor and outdoor furniture, decorative wall paneling and architectural decorations of all sorts.

Perforated aluminum is fabricated via the metal perforation process, which employs various types of perforation machinery and equipment such as punch presses, sectional XY punching presses, die presses and laser perforators, all of which can be manufactured with varying levels of automation. Regardless, to begin the perforation process, manufacturers feed metal sheet into the perforation equipment, where the metal passes through and then, one way or another, is perforated with new shapes. One of the more popular pieces of perforation equipment are rotary pinned perforation rollers. These types of perforation machines are equipped with a rolling beam, which is in turn equipped with several precisely shaped perforating tools. When the metal sheets run through machines equipped with rolling beams, the turning beam makes contact with them and forces its shape into the aluminum. (This method may be considered a punching method because the tools on the roller “punch” out shapes.) Other methods work somewhat similarly, using a press equipped with perforation tools. When at rest, perforation presses sit in a retracted position. In order to press perforations into the metal, they must be pushed down and extended into the metal. Metal perforation processes like these and others can be operated by hand, but more and more frequently, they work automatically or semi-automatically using computer controlled technology. CNC perforating machines are especially popular with manufacturers who wish to create high volumes of high quality perforated aluminum. For the creation of very small volumes of perforated aluminum products, though, manual or hand operated perforating equipment or tools can still be very effective.

In addition to aluminum, manufacturers can perforate materials such as: carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, bronze, brass, cast iron, copper, titanium and zirconium. Nevertheless, perforated aluminum shines through as one of the most highly used perforated metals in transportation, architecture, building and construction, food and beverage, sound transference and noise control and household appliances. Stainless steel manufacturers offer perforated aluminum products in a wide variety of thicknesses (measured in gages), perforation patterns, perforation sizes, tolerances, margins, sheet and plate flatnesses and product volumes. They can also further process and finish them using metal forming processes such as notching, welding, bending, rolling and shearing. Metal manufacturers are happy to create custom perforated aluminum pieces for their customers, whether that customization be related to aluminum thickness, shape, margins or perforation patterns. Some examples of perforation hole patterns with which an aluminum sheet might be punched include: straight square slots, round slot ends, staggered rounds, staggered squares, staggered centers, staggered sides, rounds, line squares, ellipses, crosses, diamonds, chain links, hexagons and decorative cut outs like flowers or stars.

Perforated aluminum and perforated aluminum products are versatile, strong, durable, lightweight, easy to manufacture and affordable. They are available with various warranties, per the company that makes them, and can be fabricated to meet the standard requirements of various governmental, industry and/or building codes, including OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), ISO (International Standards Organization) and the American Iron and Steel Institute.
