Bal-tec™ Home Raw Aluminum Pallets or Platform Castings
Raw aluminum pallet castings are available for organizations that would like to custom machine their own hardware. These castings are produced in type 356 Aluminum Alloy that is solution annealed and hardened to a condition of T4. This heat treatment provides the hardest, strongest and easiest to machine commercial condition. All of these pallets are approximately one and three-quarters ( 1 3/4", 1.750" ) inches [ 44.45 mm ] thick. These pallet castings are ribbed on the back side to reduce the weight, while maintaining their structural soundness.
The smallest pallet, our ( part number 6-24 ). It is approximately six and one-quarter ( 6 1/4", 6.25" ) inches [ 159 mm ] wide by twenty-four and one-quarter ( 24 1/4", 24.25" ) inches [ 616 mm ] long. It is approximately one and three-quarters ( 1 3/4", 1.75" ) inches [ 45 mm ] thick.
The next largest casting, our ( part number 12-16 ), is approximately twelve and one-quarter ( 12 1/4", 12.25" ) inches [ 311 mm ] wide by sixteen and one-quarter ( 16 1/4", 16.25" ) inches [ 406 mm ] long. It is approximately one and three-quarter (1.75) inches [45mm] thick.
The largest standard pallet casting, our ( part number 12-24 ), is approximately sixteen and one-quarter ( 16 1/4", 16.25" ) inches [ 413 mm ] wide, by twenty-four and one-quarter ( 24 1/4", 24.25" ) inches [ 616 mm ] long. It is approximately one and three-quarter ( 1 3/4", 1.75" ) inches [ 45 mm ] thick. It weighs approximately 32.2 pounds [14.6 kg ]
The raw casting for the riser block is part number RB-4-5. The casting is approximately seven ( 7" ) inches [ 178 mm ] long, four and three-quarter ( 4 3/4", 4.75" ) inches [ 121 mm ] high and five (5) inches [ 127 mm ] wide. It weighs approximately eleven and one-half ( 11.5 ) pounds [ 5.2 kg ]. There are two integral bosses cast into the design that can be used to hold the parts in place on the bread board.
These blocks make an excellent riser to extend the elevation of our ( part number VB-5 ) vee block casting. This part is built with ribbed construction to reduce the weight while maintaining extreme mechanical rigidity. This part is cast from Type 356 Aluminum that is solution annealed and heat treated to condition T4. This is the hardest, strongest and best machining commercial condition for this material.
These raw castings, our ( part number TR-14 ), are available for companies that prefer to do own finish machining. The trivet is a three-legged device that provides the ultimate mechanical stability of location. This is based on the concept that three points will always define a plane. It has a relatively large foot print of approximately fifteen (15) inches [381mm] diameter. It is approximately two and one-quarter (2.25) inches [57.15mm] thick and weighs eleven and three-quarter (11.75) pounds [5.33kg]. The casting is made of 356 Aluminum that is solution annealed and heat treated to condition T4. This is the hardest, strongest and best machining commercial condition. The casting uses ribbed construction to reduce its weight.
The VB-5 raw casting can be a very valuable tool for bread boarding mechanical setups. It is approximately five and one-half ( 5.5 ) inches [ 140 mm ] tall, four and three-quarter ( 4 3/4", 4.75" ) inches [ 121 mm ] wide, and seven and one-half ( 7 1/2", 7.5" ) inches [ 191 mm ] long. It weighs just over ten (10) pounds [ 4.5 kg ]. The casting is made of 356 Aluminum that is solution annealed and heat treated to condition T4. This is the hardest, strongest and most machinable commercial condition.
The riser block, ( part number RB-4-5 ) can be used to extend the elevation of the Vee Block. The locating face is included at forty-five (45) degrees. Two of these blocks across from each other form a good nest for locating relatively large cylinders, such as spindle bearings in bread board setups.
