Advantages of Aluminum Machining

Despite its low weight and density, aluminum is a strong material that is used in a variety of applications such as aerospace, marine and cable components. It also features a number of other characteristics that make it attractive, including corrosion resistance, high machinability and excellent heat and electric conductivity. Panek is able to machine this material in a wide variety of grades including, but not limited to 2024, 2011, 6061 and 7075 in bar stock and forging blanks.

Aluminum Alloy Grades & Specifications

2024 Aluminum Alloy 

This grade of aluminum has a main base of copper. It is primarily used in applications that require high strength to weight ratio, as well as good fatigue resistance. It is most often used for aircraft parts such as wing and fuselage structures and electrical hardware components.

2011 Aluminum Alloy

This grade of aluminum is excellent for machining and is used in many applications especially in electronic components

6061 Aluminum Alloy 

This type of aluminum is typically used in aircrafts such as wings and fuselages, automotive parts, electronic hardware, yacht construction and other general applications. It has good formability, weldability, and corrosion resistance.

7075 Aluminum Alloy

Designed for higher strength, this type of aluminum alloy is typically machined for aircraft components. It has good fatigue strength, not weldable and has less resistance to corrosion.
