    Hello to all!
    I’d like to know if is possible to make a flat hem on a aluminium panel of 2mm of thickness, in all its sides. The material could be EN-AW-5083 H111.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Our shop is currently flat hemming 1.6mm (.063 inch) 5052 H111. We experience some minor surface cracking as long as the material is not too dry. If you hem extra dry material, especially chemically dried, the surface cracking can be a problem. Of course the heavier the gauge the more likely cracking will be a problem.
