Machined Aluminum Parts Applications:


Aluminum parts can be found everywhere, in a range of industries, especially automotive, aerospace, industrial equipment and machinery, and consumer and computer electronics.

 

Automotive parts (light-weighting provides high strength-to-weight ratio)

Housing, brackets, and other components for aerospace use that must support heavy load capacities but be light weight

Fixtures, calipers, and a variety of other parts for industrial equipment

Enclosures, panels, consoles, knobs, housing, and other applications for consumer and computer electronics.


Anodizing Options for Aluminum Parts

Anodizing is one of the most common finishing options, offering strong corrosion protection and enhancing the overall appearance of metal parts.
