Smiths MRO is a sub-divsion of a larger business - Smiths Advanced Metals.
Smiths MRO focuses on raw material support for the global aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul market. Our business is supported by a broad and diverse stock range with a dedicated team that provides outstanding service levels required for our industry.
6061 Aluminium is a medium-strength aluminium that offers excellent machinability and resistance to atmospheric corrosion.
Smiths MRO hold stock of 6061 T651 according to AMSQQA225/8 and also other conditions, including 6061 T6511 according to AMSQQA200/8. We also stock less common tempers, including T4 and O in 6061. In some sizes, we also offer heat treatment to achieve these tempers.
Our range of 6061 Aluminium bars come in a wide range of sizes, including round bars in diameters from 0.125” (3.175mm) up to 10” (254mm) in diameter. We also stock certain rectangular bars and flats.
We offer bar products in much closer incremental sizes, and often, our products meet your exact size requirements negating the need for the material to be machined down.
We provide dedicated billeting services where we cut your aluminium bars to tight tolerances before shipping to the destination of choice. Our experienced export team ensure that your products are shipped professionally on a global basis.
We provide a dedicated 24/7 AOG support line, so if you have an out of service aircraft and require a fast material resolution, our team are on hand to take your enquiries and get your engineering materials dispatched to you. We often arrange this on the same day.
