7075 Aluminum Machining

7075 Aluminum Machining

Aluminum alloy 7075 is an ideal choice for manufacturing applications where high-performance and lightweight materials are needed. This heat-treatable high-strength alloy supports CNC milling and turning processes. At Panek Precision, we provide tight-tolerance 7075 aluminum machining services for a variety of industries.

Specifications for 7075 Aluminum Alloy

The chemical composition of aluminum alloy 7075 consists primarily of aluminum (balance) and zinc (5.1% to 6.1%) for strength and hardness. Other materials include copper, magnesium, manganese, iron, and silicon for improved corrosion resistance and thermal properties.

Exceptional Option for Machined Parts

As part of the 7xxx family of aluminum, grade 7075 alloy has excellent mechanical properties and good machineability. Benefits include:

  • Tensile strength of up to 540 MPa and yield strength of up to 480 MPa
  • Superior performance in weight-critical applications such as aircraft and automotive parts
  • Outstanding durability and impact resistance
  • Good resistance to stress-corrosion cracking
  • Valuable characteristics for exterior applications and harsh environments

This alloy can meet demanding industry specifications, including ASTM, AMS, MIL, SAE, and QQ. It also supports specialized welding processes, such as electrical resistance welding.

Industries and Applications Benefiting from Grade 7075 Aluminum

Grade 7075 aluminum alloy is extensively used in the aerospace industry. It is commonly known as aircraft-grade aluminum. This grade is an excellent fit for high-stress applications:

  • Gears and shafts
  • Fuselage parts and critical structural components
  • Valve regulators
  • Vehicle armor
  • Brackets, fittings, and casings
  • Jet engine parts

In addition, 7075 aluminum machined parts play a significant role in the defense, automotive, heavy equipment manufacturing, marine, and tooling industries. Some engineering applications use 7075 alloy machining for commercial and industrial construction.
