What's the difference between aluminum extrusion and aluminum casting.
Aluminum extrusion and aluminum casting are two common processes used to produce aluminum parts. Both processes involve melting aluminum and shaping it into a desired form. However, the difference between the two lies in the way that the molten metal is shaped.
Aluminum extrusion involves pushing molten metal through a die to create a specific shape with uniform cross-section. On the other hand, aluminum casting involves pouring molten metal into a mold to create a desired shape with complex internal features.
Aluminum extrusion is faster and cheaper than casting but it is limited by the shapes that can be created by pushing molten metal through a die. Aluminum casting, on the other hand, allows for more complex shapes but it is more expensive and time-consuming than extrusion.
How does aluminum extrosion work?
Aluminum extrusion is a process that involves pushing heated aluminum through a die to create a long, continuous shape. This process is used to create products such as window frames, door frames, and other structural components. The process starts with loading the aluminum into a hopper and heating it up until it is malleable enough to be pushed through the die. Once it has been pushed through the die, the aluminum takes on the shape of the die and can be cut into any desired length. This process allows for mass production of complex shapes with minimal waste.
When aluminum extrusion combine with CNC machining is necessary?
Aluminum extrusion and CNC machining are two of the most commonly used techniques for creating complex parts. While aluminum extrusion is a great choice for parts that require a high degree of precision, CNC machining can be used to create intricate shapes and details that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to achieve with aluminum extrusion alone. Combining these two processes can create parts with exceptional strength and accuracy, making them ideal for applications in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, and electronics.
