Material removal is a simple technique that turns raw material into any required shape.

Swain Aluminum’s aluminum machining professionals have many years of experience and are ready to assist you with your next project. We are trustworthy Aluminum Machining operators with years of experience in this industry.

Machining refers to the process of removing materials from a work item during the manufacturing process. This technology is extremely adaptable, accommodating a wide range of metals and nonmetals.

Aluminum machining process:

Machines are used in manufacturing procedures such as milling, turning, and drilling. Horizontal and vertical milling, as well as electrical discharge machining (EDM), are kinds of machining that are similar to CNC machining.

Here’s how each of these machining processes handles aluminum.

  • CNC machining:

Computer Numerical Control or CNC-compatible hardware and software are used to operate machine tools across work pieces. We can produce aluminum CNC products and parts with high precision and accuracy.

  • Vertical/horizontal milling:

Milling removes superfluous materials from a work piece by rotating cutting tools. Milling machines can be set either vertically or horizontally.

Vertical mills are better suited for small quantities of simple aluminum components, whereas horizontal mills are better suited for large numbers of complex aluminum parts.

  • Electronic discharge machining (EDM):

During EDM, an electrical discharge occurs between two electrodes, which removes material from work parts. However, it’s suitable for use on any electrically conductive material.

Industries that rely on our machinable aluminum parts include:

Aluminum is used in manufacturing to make a variety of parts and products. Aluminum is used in the following industries:

  • Automotive.
  • Communications.
  • Electrical and electronic equipment.
  • Lighting.
  • Front panels, lighting fixtures, buses, refrigerators, and other common products.

Unique Advantages of Aluminum Machining that can Help Your Business.

Aside from its exceptional machinability, aluminum has several properties that make it appropriate for machining:

  • High strength-to-weight ratio: Aluminum has a high strength-to-weight ratio, which is important in the aerospace and automotive industries.
  • Corrosion resistance: Different types of aluminum have differing degrees of corrosion resistance. One of the primary benefits of one of the most often-used grades, 6061, is its resistance to corrosion.
  • Electrical conductivity: Metals with poorer electrical conductivity than aluminum include steel and stainless steel.

This type of aluminum part is perfect for electrical and electronic components.

  • Anodization and surface finishing: Painting, tinting, and anodizing are all common ways to finish aluminum. An aluminum part or product with this quality can be improved in terms of function and aesthetics.

The primary reasons why you should choose aluminum:

Aluminum is a material that is frequently utilized in machining operations. Because of its smaller material weight, lower material hardness, and great formability, it is perfect for machining and other manufacturing activities.

  • Aluminum is lighter and more machinable than steel and stainless steel.
  • It offers a higher material strength than ABS.
  • Aluminum is more machinable and cheaper.
  • Aluminum is more potent and heat-resistant.
  • Aluminum maintains a higher material strength.

We at Swain Aluminum provide the ideal solution for items that demand a high strength-to-weight ratio for your Machining requirements. We recognize that the production material is critical in the planning of a machining job.
