Precision Aluminum CNC Machining
Aluminum is a metal that is closely related to me in our daily life. Its role and importance are self-evident. Aluminum has the characteristics of low density, high strength, good plasticity, good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance. It is precise because of these excellent characteristics of aluminum that aluminum has become the “darling” of many processing industries. Aluminum products are widely used in aerospace, military, industrial production, and other industries.
We generally process aluminum parts by the following methods：
Precision Machining: Aluminum plate parts are produced by high-precision lathe machining. This process has the following characteristics:
1. The number of tooling is reduced, and multi-coordinate linkage can be carried out.
2. High processing precision and good quality, which can meet the processing needs of aircraft.
3. Variety of varieties, effective efficiency is fast and efficient, and the degree of automation is high.
4. Various complex structures and profiles can be processed.
5. Mass production and quality can be controlled.
Choose the right aluminum alloy.
There are many types of aluminum alloys. We need to choose the appropriate aluminum alloy to produce products according to our needs. Common aluminum alloys have the following three representatives:
Aluminum 6061:It is a heat-treatable hardenable alloy. The main alloying elements are Mg and Si. The material is dense and defect-free, with good corrosion resistance, machinability, and moderate strength.
Aluminum 7075：It is a cold-treated forging alloy. The main alloying element is Zn. It is one of the strongest commercial alloys, with high strength and much higher than mild steel, good mechanical properties, easy processing, excellent corrosion resistance, and oxidation resistance.
Aluminum 2024:It is a heat-treatable alloy. The main alloying elements are Mg and Si. It has excellent processing performance, excellent welding performance, good electroplating performance, and good corrosion resistance.
You need to choose the right aluminum alloy to meet the needs of the products you need. If you have any questions, you can contact us, and our professional staff will help you.
