Aerospace Components Made from Aluminum

Aluminum is a silver metal alloy, and it is lightweight, long-lasting, and durable. Aluminum machining often used in Aircraft, Aerospace, and Military Applications.Mostly aluminum and aluminum alloys are frequently chosen by designers and engineers for CNC Machining and CNC Milling Parts.

Aluminum for Aircraft Components

Aluminum is a durable and ideal material that is used for the machined components of Aircraft and spacecraft. Its unique quality permits it to be refined into lightweight, inexpensive, and strong parts which are important for creating secure and better equipment. However, steel and iron materials are more solid and much heavier than aluminum. Heavy Weight Materials can affect the take-off ability of Airplanes and Spacecraft, that’s why aluminum is an ideal material for machined Spacecraft and aircraft components.

The Federal Aviation Administration Professional has estimated that approximately 70% to 80% of the materials that form today’s aircraft come from Aluminum. The easily corrodable material can be very risky and dangerous for spacecraft and aircraft machinery.Numerous companies are developing 3rd generation aluminum-lithium alloy that promises costs savings and weight loss, without the requirement for protection from lightning strikes like is the case with the composite-intensive aircraft.

That’s why Aluminum Machining is a great choice for manufacturers in this industry because aluminum has many desirable qualities, one of the best qualities that aluminum has is its corrosion resistance and the ability to work efficiently in chemical environments.

High-quality components machined with aluminum include:

• Valve seats
• Control valve housings
• Check valves
• Pistons
• Hinges
• Transducer rings
• And much more
