242   |   Published by VMT at Sep 10 2021




Mechanical production is used for prototype manufacturing and short-term production of raw materials. For CNC machining projects, the physical properties of aluminum materials have become one of the most popular material choices. Custom CNC aluminum machining parts are common in all industries, and are particularly popular in the automotive, aerospace, healthcare, and consumer electronics sectors.





Customized CNC aluminum machining parts service



Over the past 11 years, VMT has developed unique production processes and custom engineering to meet customers' needs for customized CNC aluminum machining parts. With our CNC aluminum processing expertise, we stand out from the competition by combining technology, skills, experience and knowledge.





Benefits of aluminum machined parts




1. Easy to process


The advantage of the aluminum CNC machining process is that the material can be easily manufactured by stamping, folding and drilling. You can use it to form custom CNC aluminum machining parts in various shapes according to your custom machining needs. Compared with processing steel, the energy used for processing aluminum is much lower.



2. Easy to bend


The advantage of using CNC machining process to manufacture custom CNC aluminum machining parts is that they can be easily bent. Unlike steel, aluminum can be easily turned during processing because the thickness of this material can be appropriately used in various forming methods. It is best to realize various shapes of CNC aluminum machined parts through die casting and machining.



3. Low temperature resistance


The aluminum material is resistant to low temperatures. We all know how fragile steel is, especially in welded parts or low temperature environments. Compared with steel materials, aluminum materials can be easily processed at low temperatures.



4. Customized finishing


The aluminum can be customized according to customer requirements after finishing. You can do surface treatment to give it a perfect custom appearance. Customized CNC aluminum processing parts can be plated in various colors according to your requirements. Some colors you can try include black, blue, and green.


Custom CNC aluminum machining parts have some changes in design and specifications, which gives them the flexibility to quickly transition through the initiation of new review and approval procedures. Ensure the quality of parts in custom CNC aluminum machining parts projects. Common custom CNC aluminum machining parts materials are: aluminum 2024, aluminum 5052, aluminum 7075, aluminum 6063 and aluminum 6061.
