6 Types of CNC Machining Materials

Alloy Steel CNC Machining

CNC machining is one of the most common manufacturing methods used to manufacture metal parts. Computer digital control (CNC) uses processes that allow the use of a high degree of automation to manufacture parts and has advantages over many traditional manufacturing methods in terms of speed, productivity and accuracy. Choosing the right materials for CNC machining can be a daunting task, and many factors should be considered when selecting materials for parts, including machinability, price, corrosion resistance, strength, weight and…

Can A356 Aluminum Alloy be Used in Die Casting Process?

Can A356 Aluminum Alloy be Used in Die Casting Process

A356 is a cast aluminum alloy, non-die cast aluminum alloy. It is mainly used for structural parts with high strength and good elongation. Fe element exists as impurity, and the content of Fe affects the elongation of aluminum castings. The higher the content of Fe, the more brittle the aluminum castings are. As you may know, the Fe content of A356 is less than 0.2%, and the Fe content of A356 aluminum ingot is less than 0.12%. However, the die-casting…

Aluminum CNC Machining Services

CNC Machined Aluminium Parts

Aluminum is considered one of the best metals for CNC machining because it is relatively easy to machine. Aluminum possesses all the properties required for machinings, such as light-weight, good strength, and perfect durability. Since aluminum is a light metal and easy to machine, you can use it in various applications.  Similar to stainless steel CNC Machining, Aluminum CNC machining process cuts the raw material bit to bit to achieve desired shape to meet the drawing’s specification. So, it is also a custom process…
