CNC machined Aluminum

Aluminum is a relatively easy metal to machine which makes it great for CNC machining . Aluminum has useful properties for machining such as being lightweight, malleable, tractable and overall good durability. It being so light and easy to work with means that it can be used for a wide variety of applications. CNC machined Aluminum parts begin as a raw piece of metal which is cut down bit by bit to create a desired shape or object. This process is done most accurately with a CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) machine which can produce almost any three dimensional object designed via CAD (Computer Aided Design) software.

Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost to CNC Aluminum?

The cost of CNC machining Aluminum depends on the complexity and size of the part and the type of Aluminum. These variables will affect the type of machine that is required, the time it takes to produce the part and the cost of the raw material.

We use machine learning algorithms to calculate the exact cost of any machinable part directly from a CAD file, based on millions of CNC machining orders we’ve previously processed. Simply upload a CAD file to get an instant CNC machining quote .



What is CNC Aluminum machining?

CNC Aluminum machining is a manufacturing process that involves cutting a piece of raw Aluminum until a final desired shape or object remains. CNC machines cut unwanted geometries away from a raw block of Aluminum using a CNC (computer numerically controlled) milling tool. These machines are very precise, allowing for high accuracy and part complexity.
