Aluminum Machined Parts
Benefits of Using Aluminum as your Machined Parts Material
To start with, aluminum machined parts are some of the strongest and most lightweight parts available. Aluminum is also great to work with due to its high ductility. In addition, compared to titanium it is relatively inexpensive. Finally, the fact that aluminum machining has the capability to withstand high temperatures and pressures.
Another benefit to note is its highly corrosion-resistant nature. This is due to aluminum’s tight chemical oxide bond. Which means that when it is exposed to the environment it is sealed. Another benefit of this metal is that raw aluminum is highly conductive for electrical purposes. This also allows it to be utilized in electrical applications.
Aluminum also has a high removal rate and can be finished with a multitude of options. It can be plated with electroless nickel, zinc, or anodized.
Industries that use Aluminum Machined Parts
Our customers in the aerospace, automotive, home improvement, defense, and building industries typically use aluminum in their parts. Specifically, for hydraulic parts, fittings, fluid control, and aluminum fluid delivery parts. We have also seen an increase in the use in aluminum for parts such as carbon-reinforced polymers, and honeycomb materials due to their light weight specifically needed for aircraft in the aerospace industry.
Our Aluminum Machining Process
Specifically, here at M&R engineering, we specialize in making aluminum parts such as hose clamps, hydraulics, connectors electrical (plated), and fittings. We utilize both our milling and turning machines to manufacture these parts. Both options (milling and turning) are great options for aluminum parts depending on the specifications of the project. We can run mill-turn on our Lathe and Swiss equipment in order to deliver the optimum pricing available for you and your project. We specialize in combining multiple operations into one in order to cut down on timing and costs.
