Aluminum alloys we have machined:
- Investment castings
- Sand castings
Aluminum alloys can have a range of properties from very easy to form to very stiff, from easy to machine to very stringy. 2011 lead alloyed aluminum was developed to be very easily machined, but since the European Union issued its directives, 2024 might be a better alternative if lead-free and free-machining and stiffness are desired. 6000 series alloys are less easily machined but more corrosion resistant. We have small to large quantities of most of these alloys in stock.
