No matter your industry, contact us today and learn why CNC machining with aluminum will help your project.
Aluminum Is Easy To Use
Aluminum is a strong metal, but it has roughly one-third the density of steel. This means that it can be cut and shaped by a CNC machine tool with ease. Its density also means that aluminum does not warp or deform as it’s being cut, which means your prototypes or parts can be built to higher tolerances.
Aluminum Means Quicker Turn-Around Times
Because it’s so easy to cut, we can produce parts much quicker using aluminum than steel or other metals like copper or magnesium. If deadlines are tight or rapid turnaround times are required, aluminum may be your business’ best choice.
Aluminum Resists Rust
Aerospace has long used aluminum for external applications because it naturally resists corrosion. Aluminum forms a small oxide layer, only about one nanometer thick, but even though that layer is small it protects against all forms of rust and decay.
Aluminum Is Highly Conductive
If you are in the electrical industry, aluminum parts provide an extra benefit as it is one of the most electrically and thermally conductive metals. Aluminum has a conductivity rating of roughly 38 million siemens per meter, much higher than steel and trailing only copper for conductivity amongst metals commonly used for CNC machining.
Aluminum Is Recyclable
Best of all, aluminum is easily and readibly recyclable. This helps business recoup costs by getting money for their waste aluminum and reduces the environmental impact of CNC machining.
