With the wide use of light metals, aluminum alloy is widely used as a lightweight and easily machinable material for industrial components and construction materials.
If aluminum alloy meets your requirements, we recommend that you use this alloy for your parts or prototypes. In this way, you can save on material costs and reduce manufacturing time costs.
Chansmachining is a wholesale CNC machining aluminum parts factory in China. We are equipped with a wide range of CNC machining centers and lathes to meet the machining demands of our customers for a variety of products. Whether your product is simple or complex, small or large, we can produce it with high quality.
Aluminum CNC machining process
Billet aluminum block is a soft metal, so it can be processed in many ways, such as aluminum extrusion, EDM cutting, wire cutting, die casting, investment casting, aluminum extrusion, and forging. Chansmachining is a CNC machining center, we mainly use 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis machining centers to manufacture aluminum machining part and prototypes.
Aluminum Mill Component
Turning is more often used for machining aluminum components that are suitable for machining flat surfaces, grooves, special shaped surfaces, etc.
Aluminum Turning Component
Turning is more frequently used for machining aluminum parts such as cylindrical surfaces, end faces, tapered surfaces, formed surfaces, and threads.
Aluminum 5-Axis Machining Parts
Five-axis machines are ideal for machining products made of aluminum that require high precision and curved surfaces.
Advantages of the aluminum component
Due to its soft texture, aluminum can be easily processed by various fabrication methods.
Aluminum is only one-third the weight of steel for the same volume. However, it maintains a high level of strength.
Through being oxidized, aluminum can enhance the resistance to scratching and corrosion.
At very low temperatures, aluminum still retains its flexibility, ductility, and strength.
Compared to pure aluminum, aluminum alloys have lower electrical conductivity, which is enough to be used in many electrical parts.
Aluminum can be recycled with low energy and cost.
Aluminum is easily anodized, which enables the addition of color to machined aluminum parts.
The general aluminum alloy grade
Aluminum alloy can be classified into different grades based on the addition of different metal elements. Here are some of the aluminum alloys that we commonly use in machining.
6061 aluminum is a magnesium and silicon high-quality aluminum alloy product. It has excellent characteristics such as high toughness and non-deformable, easily colored film, and great oxidation effect. It is widely used in industrial structural parts, decoration, covering, packaging, building frame, and decorative surface.
6063 aluminum is a magnesium and silicon high quality aluminum alloy product. 6063 can be heat treated and welded making it a very popular material for aluminum extrusion. 6063 is extensively used in architectural decorative profiles, window and door frames, furniture aluminum profiles, aluminum profile housings, aluminum radiators, etc.
2024 is an aluminum alloy using copper as the main element. It has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and fatigue resistance, so it is mainly used for parts that are required to withstand high loads. It is mainly used in structural applications such as aircraft components, rivets, metal parts, truck wheels, screw products, etc.
5052 is an aluminum alloy based mainly on magnesium. It is the best overall performance. It has good forming performance and strong pressure resistance. It is used to manufacture aircraft fuel tanks and pipes, instruments of transportation vehicles and ships, street light brackets and rivets, hardware products, electrical housings, etc.
7075 is a super hard aluminum alloy material using zinc as the main element. Its hardness is close to that of steel. It is widely used in aircraft structures and other high-stress structural parts requiring high strength, such as the aerospace industry, golf heads, jigs, mechanical equipment, mold processing, and making high-end aluminum alloy bicycle frames.
CNC anodized aluminum
There are many surface treatment methods for machined aluminum parts, such as sandblasting, electrophoresis, electroplating, polishing, anodizing, oxidizing, and powder coating. Each of these methods has its own characteristics and advantages. The surface treatment method can be selected according to the specific use of the aluminum part.
But among all surface treatments, anodizing is the most popular one for aluminum parts. This is because it has the advantages as below
- Adding color to the part, increases the aesthetic appeal and attractiveness of the product.
- Adding a hard film to the surface of the product to enhance wear resistance, corrosion resistance, etc.
