Grades of Aluminium

The types of aluminium grade you intend to use depends on your machining projects, which allow you to choose the aluminum of specific properties and shapes as per your needs.

The following are some types about the aluminium grade:

Aluminium 2024: The alloy is predominantly used in the military and aerospace sectors. This is because of its mechanical properties, like great weariness resistance, and high strength. The aluminium 2024 is terrible in corrosion resistance and not weldable.

Aluminium 6061: This grade has superb mechanical properties, excellent weldability. This is because of its good toughness, medium and high strength, excellent corrosion resistance in harsh conditions, cool anodization, and bending workability. Aluminium 6061 is commonly used for 5 axis CNC machining.

Aluminium 5052: Aluminium 5052 offers good resistance to marine, saltwater, and industrial environments. The alloy can be easily punched, bent, and sheared into desired shapes.

Aluminium 6063: The alloy has excellent mechanical properties, such as easy weldability, heat treatability, and durability. Aluminium 6063 is used for aluminium extrusion applications. This alloy is commonly used for creating complex shapes with smooth surfaces and is commonly used in applications such as door frames, window frames, sign frames, roofs, etc.

Aluminium 7075: This grade is known for its exceptional fatigue strength. This aluminium grade is not suitable for welding, it’s not cost-effective. So, it is better for tough parts, such as fuselages, bicycle parts, rock climbing kits, and aircraft wings.

Benefits of Aluminium Machining Parts

  • Good Corrosion Resistance

The density of aluminium is only 2.7 g/cm3, which is about the density of steel, copper or brass. In most conditions, (including air, water, or saltwater), petroleum chemistry, and many chemical systems, aluminium can display excellent corrosion resistance.

  • Resistant to Low Temperatures

Aluminium materials are resistant to low temperatures. We all know how steel can be delicate especially in the welding section or an environment with low temperatures. Aluminium materials can be easily machined under low temperatures compared to the steel material.

  • Easy Machining

The other good advantage of the aluminium CNC machining process is that materials can easily be manufactured through punching, folding, and drilling. You can use it to form various shapes of the parts as they are needed. The energy used in the machining of aluminium is much lower compared to that which is used in steel.

  • Good Electrical Conductivity

Aluminium machining parts, due to its good conductivity, on the basis of equal weight, the electrical conductivity of aluminium to copper twice.

  • High Thermal Conductivity of Rate

The thermal conductivity of aluminium alloy volume rate is about 50-60% of copper, the manufacturing heat exchangers, evaporators, heating appliances, cooking utensils, as well as the automobile cylinder head and radiator are favorable.

  • Cost-effective

In terms of machining materials, aluminium machined parts are the most economical because they can be used for CNC machining and milling within shorter periods of time than other metals.
