Examples of Aluminum for Precision Components

Aluminum
6061

aluminum for precision parts

The aluminum alloy with which we work the most. It is one of the more corrosion-resistant aluminum alloys and is also easily-machined, though cannot be run at speeds as high as 2011. We have made parts of 6061 aluminum for the aerospace, medical, and powersports industries.

Aluminum
2011

aluminum for precision parts

The best machining of all the aluminum alloys, even better than 6061.

Aluminum
2024

aluminum for precision parts

A strong, copper-alloyed aluminum that is easily machined. It is less corrosion-resistant than 6061 thanks to the presence of copper but is stronger under tension.

Aluminum
7075

aluminum for precision parts

A stronger aluminum that can be more difficult to machine than 2011.

Aluminum
6082

aluminum for precision parts

The strongest of the 6000-series aluminums and still can be machined, making it an alternative to 6061. It can be more difficult to produce thin walls from 6082 than from 6061.

Aluminum
6262

aluminum for precision parts

A relatively uncommon aluminum that was designed specifically to be highly-machinable on Swiss-style machines.
