Advantages of Machining Aluminum Parts

Aluminum is a soft and silvery-white metal that is considered the most widespread in the world. It naturally generates a protective thin oxide coating, which protects against corrosion and degradation. This material also has a long life and is completely recyclable, making it environmentally friendly.

It easily binds with other elements like iron, silicon, copper, magnesium, manganese, and zinc. As a result, alloyed aluminum can be produced with a wide range of characteristics. 

  • Lightweight 
  • Corrosion-resistant 
  • Electrical conductivity 
  • Shock absorption
  • Nonmagnetic 
  • Ductility
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Sound absorption
  • Nontoxic
  • Reflectivity
  • Odorless
  • Non-sparking
  • Thermal conductivity

Aluminum Alloys

At Moon Tool & Die Co., we can machine, weld, and assemble any material. Our team regularly works with 2000, 6000, 7000, and FORTAL series aluminum. Each series has unique performance characteristics that should be considered when selecting the right aluminum alloy for an application. 

 

2024 Aluminum

An aluminum alloy with copper as the primary alloying element. It exhibits a high strength-to-weight ratio, good fatigue resistance, and average machinability. Common applications include aircraft parts, vehicle wheels, gears, cylinders, and pistons. 

 

6061 Aluminum

A precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy that contains magnesium and silicon as major alloying elements. It has good mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and weldability. It is a typical aluminum-alloy selection for both industrial and general-purpose applications, including marine frames, welded assemblies, fasteners, aircraft parts, electronic components, furniture, heat exchangers, vehicle trim, and parts, and chemical equipment. 

 

7075 Aluminum 

An aluminum alloy with zinc as the primary alloying element. It has excellent mechanical properties and exhibits good ductility, strength, toughness, and fatigue resistance. Typical uses are bicycle frames, electrical fittings, heat sinks, aircraft components, and vehicle parts. 

 

FORTAL Aluminum

A high-strength, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and easy-to-machine aluminum alloy. Initially developed for aerospace components, it’s become popular for use as tooling and cutting devices.

The Moon Tool Advantage

Aluminum goes into the buildings people live and work in, cars they drive, and devices they use daily. Many machine shops, however, produce a high rate of nonconforming parts. This results in unplanned downtime, missed deadlines, and, ultimately, blown budgets for the client. That’s why Original Equipment Manufacturers, or OEMs, and others should team up with the manufacturing experts at Moon Tool & Die Co.

Innovative technology and experienced engineering and production personnel enable Moon Tool & Die Co. to manufacture components to challenging dimensional tolerances and assemble upper-level items quickly and efficiently. Material is purchased from reputable suppliers, and compliance is verified upon arrival. Our quality control team uses precise testing and inspection equipment to ensure every part produced surpasses customer specifications. All orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.
