Aluminum Machining

Aluminum, the World’s Most Used Alloy

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.

Different Types of Aluminum:

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.

How Can You Actually Use This?

By understanding the different metals and their applications, you can be armed with the knowledge of what material is best for your specific needs.
