CNC Aluminium Prototyping. Stepping up from easier materials can open up new applications in a wider variety of industries. Being one of the most common materials in CNC machining, aluminum is an ideal material for prototyping, and bringing the capability in-house is certainly worth considering. Depending on the industries your operation serves, and the parts they need, it may even be a necessity.
A whole host of products are machined in aluminum and represent a wide variety of industries.
For CNC machining projects, aluminum is one of the most popular material choices due to its desirable physical properties.
Properties of Aluminum
Excellent corrosion and chemical resistance
High strength-to-weight ratio
Good heat and electrical conductivity
Reflects heat and light
Prototypes and Parts Delivered Quickly with Three Simple Steps
Our CNC lathes enable high speed and quality turning of both plastics and metals. The turning process allows for complex external geometries and internal bores to be generated. Our turning capacity is available for prototypes through to low-volume production.
CNC Milling Service
CNC milling is used to apply a machined surface finish on plastic or metal, or for creating complex 3D shapes. We use domestic and imported 3, 4 and 5-axis CNC machining centers with quick-change tooling, programmed using advanced software.
EDM / Wire EDM And Surface Grinding
EDM is a method for cutting holes, pockets and other shapes into hardened steel, as well as imparting a surface texture to the internal cavities of mold tools. A sacrificial electrode in an electrolyte bath discharges a high-powered electric spark to erode very hard materials that would be difficult or impossible to do with any other method. Square pocket holes are often created with this method. With wire EDM, a wire is continuously fed between two spools. When electrically charged, it’s able to cut through hardened tool steels quickly and accurately.
We also offer surface grinding services. When surface grinding, the workpiece is held stationary on a horizontal plate. The surface grinding wheel is computer controlled to abrade the workpiece to a precise depth.
Rapid CNC Machining
Can produce parts of almost any shape
Cost-effective for prototyping and short runs
High dimensional tolerances are possible
Smooth finishes can be achieved
We also can provide additional finishing services according to your needs like polishing, mirror polishing, anodizing, plating, sandblasting, Passivating, Blacking, Painting, silk-screen, laser engraving and powder coating and so on.
