Aluminum is the most commonly used metal in CNC machining, aside from steel.
Aluminum alloys are famous for their strong corrosion resistance and high strength-to-weight ratio.
While these alloys are sensitive to extreme heat, their strength can actually increase at subzero temperatures, making them the ideal low-temperature alloys.
Aluminum alloys we use for our machined parts:
