What Are Processes Of Aluminum Fabrication
Updated: 3 Apr 2023
What Is Aluminum FabricationAluminum fabrication is the process of shaping and forming aluminum into a desired shape or structure. It involves CNC cutting, bending, welding, and assembling aluminum parts to create a finished product.
Aluminum is a lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant material commonly used in various industries such as construction, aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing. Aluminum fabrication techniques can create a wide range of products, such as window frames, doors, panels, roofing systems, automotive parts, aircraft components, and more.
The aluminum fabrication process usually begins with creating a design or blueprint outlining the product's specific dimensions, shapes, and features. The following steps involve cutting the raw aluminum sheets or bars into the desired shapes using saws, drills, and other cutting tools. These shapes are then bent, rolled, or formed into the desired shapes and sizes using bending machines, rollers, and presses.
Welding and joining techniques such as MIG, TIG, and arc welding are then used to attach the various parts and components of the product. The product is then sanded, polished, or painted to give it a smooth, polished, and aesthetically pleasing surface.
Processes of Aluminum FabricationExtrusion: An extrusion machine presses the aluminum material into the desired shape. This method is suitable for manufacturing pipes, profiles and complex-shaped parts, etc.
Stamping: The aluminum material is cut into the desired shape using a stamping machine. This method is suitable for manufacturing automobile parts, home appliance parts, electronic equipment parts, etc.
Milling: A milling machine cuts aluminum material into the desired shape. This method is suitable for manufacturing high-precision parts, such as aviation parts, molds, etc.
Drilling: Use a drill press or holes in the aluminum material to create holes, threads, etc.
Welding: Using TIG, MIG, or other welding methods. This method is suitable for manufacturing large parts in machinery, automobile, construction, etc.
Surface treatment: Through anodized, electrophoretic coating, powder coated, and other surface treatment methods, the characteristics of anti-corrosion, anti-oxidation, and aesthetics are added to aluminum materials, and their service life and value are improved.
3D printing: Using a 3D printer to manufacture aluminum powder into the desired shape through fusion tomography technology, suitable for manufacturing complex and precise parts.
The above are some standard process methods in aluminum fabrication. Shenghai Aluminum can use different process methods for application fields and product requirements.
