Materials idea for a project

  1. Jul 25, 2014 #1
    I have a heavy apparatus I am working on which needs to be mounted onto a plate (or some other support structure). The plate material has to be high strength, light-weight, and display very weak magnetic properties. Any suggestions for a material?

    Thank you.

    "Heavy" might mean anything from 10kg to 1000 tonnes depending what sort of engineering you do.

    Since you want it to be non-magnetic, if aluminum isn't strong enough, you could try titanium.
