Aluminum is one of the more versatile metals, making it one of the more common metals used in machining. Because of its greater formability, low weight and affordability, aluminum is ideal for machining and manufacturing. Aluminum is used in many different industries but is most commonly used by the aerospace, automotive, electronics, medical and communications industries.
Beyond being affordable and recyclable, aluminum has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, making it great for high-performance applications where weight is a concern. Aluminum is also HIGHLY conductive at 37.7 million siemens/meter, compared to stainless steel at 1.5 million siemens/meter. It is also ideal as a finish on a product since it is anodizeable and highly resistant to corrosion.
Because of its excellent characteristics, aluminum is the first choice for a large variety of uses by many. Just a few of these examples include applications like:
