CNC milling aluminum has many uses. We should select different aluminum models for different products. This article will introduce the characteristics of different grades of aluminum alloys. And what industries they apply.


Aluminum 2024 is a high-strength alloy. It has good wear resistance and mechanical properties. But its corrosion resistance is feeble. We cannot use it for welded structures. You shall use other methods for fixing during assembly. It is usually used in the military industry and aerospace industry. It is a less used aluminum alloy.


Aluminum 6061 is one of the most commonly used aluminum alloys for CNC machining. The 6061 has an excellent comprehensive performance. The welding effect is also excellent. It has good toughness and specific strength. And its corrosion resistance under harsh conditions. It can use a cold anode oxidation process and bending process. These advantages are that it has become the most common precision metal CNC machining milling metal.


Aluminum 7075 is a metal second only to aluminum 6061. Its main advantage lies in its resistance to metal fatigue. It is mainly used for making solid structures. At the same time, aluminum 7075 is expensive. And cannot be welded. It is mainly used for the production of sports products and aviation products. While ensuring strength, the weight is reduced as much as possible.
