Different Types of Aluminum Used For Machining

Aluminum is the most commonly used type of material machined by Computer Numerical Controls, as it offers above standard resistances, strengths and benefits, along with exhibiting absolutely excellent machinability, making it one of the most preferred types of materials used in the manufacturing sector. Used extensively for making lightweight parts and components, CNC Aluminum machining has different types used by different parts of the manufacturing industry. Read on to find out more about some of the most common types of aluminum used in the manufacturing industry:

  • Aluminum 6061: 6061 is quite well liked because along with superior mechanical properties, this type of aluminum also has excellent weld ability, these, and other, properties, making it one of the most commonly found types of Aluminum extrusion materials. It is used for a wide variety of purposes, and takes the role of ‘common aluminum’ when compared to the other two.
  • Aluminum 7075: Famous for its high fatigue strength, this type of aluminum is only used for small, tough parts that take a lot of punishment. This type of aluminum is not ideal for welding purposes, since it is one of the more expensive types of aluminum out on the market right now.
  • Aluminum 2024: Used mostly by the military and aerospace fields, this particular type shows great weariness strengths, along with a general high strength, making it the perfect type of machined material to make planes and military vehicles out of. As one may guess, it is highly in demand by most aerospace and military vehicle manufacturers, and is thus bought in huge amounts all over the world.
