If you need aluminum machining done right, we have you covered. Aluminum machining consists of using CNC machines or CNC lathes create your part. Below you will find a list of different types of aluminum we specialize in. Aluminum machining is our core competency; Yorke Precision is one of the premiere aluminum machining facilities in Silicon Valley.
6061-0 – Annealed 6061 has maximum tensile strength 18,000 psi maximum.
6061-T4 – T4 temper has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 30,000 psi and yield strength of at least 16,000 psi.
6061-T6 – it is the most commonly used alloy. It has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi and yield strength of at least 35,000 psi.
6063 – Great for extrusions, usually produced with a very smooth surface great for anodizing.
5052 – Very good corrosion resistant, used in marine applications.
7075 – This is aircraft grade. It is strong, with good fatigue strength and average machinability, but not a good corrosion resistant.
By understanding the different metals and their applications, you can be armed with the knowledge of what material is best for your specific needs.
