What is machining aluminium?

Aluminium’s properties make it ideal for machining, including turning, milling or grinding. It is a relatively soft material that is easy to machine, and it is a good conductor of heat. As such, it is possible to machine aluminium at high speeds. It is important to use a machine that is exceptionally stable for this purpose to be able to guarantee the required precision at these high speeds.

What are the benefits of aluminium?

Aluminium has several benefits:

  • Easy to machine
  • Light material
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Using anodising techniques, it is possible to give this metal different colours or deposit a hard layer
