Aluminum Alloy Machining Parts
The most widely used die casting alloy, Aluminum Alloy 380, is very good for machining purposes.
High-speed steel tools are generally used for machining aluminum
Spiral-flute reamers are preferable to straight-flute reamers when working with aluminum
It is not necessary to use high clamping forces when machining aluminum. By using moderate clamping forces we avoid the dimensional variations that occur as a result of distortion
SURFACE FINISHES & PLATING
External surface plating is applied to components if the parts require a decorative finish or corrosion resistance. There are electroless nickel, plating gold, yellow chromate with Zinc, yellow chromate without
