CNC milling aluminum

At Machinefabriek Boessenkool you can take your workpiece or project for various machining operations, such as CNC milling. In addition to milling, we can also do CNC turning, large machining, drilling, boring or grindingfor you. At Machinefabriek Boessenkool we have an extensive machine park and we can handle orders of different sizes and volumes. Our professionals are ready to use their knowledge and experience to work on your project with the aim of achieving the best and desired result. Which aluminum or metal workpiece can our CNC millers machine for you?

What is CNC milling?

CNC milling is a machining operation in which the machining is controlled by a computer. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control and in this way a workpiece is processed very accurately into the desired end product. Milling uses a rotating tool to remove material. This tool is called the cutter. Milling is carried out on a milling machine. The workpiece to be machined is clamped on the milling machine and the milling cutter moves in various directions and positions to give the desired shape to the workpiece. At Machinefabriek Boessenkool we have a new versatile 5-axis CNC milling machine, the IBARMIA ZVH45/L1500. This machine is highly sought after for its capacity, flexibility and compact space on the work floor and is ideal for CNC milling aluminum.

Which materials besides aluminum can CNC mill?

With CNC milling, raw materials are processed into products. You can apply CNC milling to different materials. The most common is milling wood, plastic or aluminum. All materials have their own specific properties and require their own processing approach.

In addition to wood and plastic, there is a lot of demand for processing aluminum. This type of metal can be milled into all kinds of shapes, which makes this application ideal for various purposes. It is good to know that precision is required when milling aluminum and this often involves an accuracy of a few micrometers.

CNC milling aluminum requires precision

Aluminum is a metal that is easy to mill. However, there is a chance that this material deforms easily. This is because the metal becomes warmer during CNC milling of aluminum. If the machining requires precision and minimum tolerances must be taken into account, an accurate approach is important. This special approach can, for example, prevent the aluminum from vibrating or deforming during milling. It is important that the stability of the workpiece is properly monitored at every stage during CNC milling of aluminum. This stability is guaranteed by choosing the right process, equipment and operation.

CNC milling aluminum costs

At Machinefabriek Boessenkool, aluminum milling falls under metalworking and this is one of the many machining operations that we can perform. Depending on several components, we are happy to provide you with a customized quote, so that you know clearly in advance where you stand. Various factors that influence CNC milling of aluminum are examined.

  • The size of the workpiece
  • The volume of material that needs to be milled away
  • The size of the overall project
  • The diameter of the cutters to be used
  • The number of surfaces to be edited
  • The roughness of the surface

Aluminum milling at Machinefabriek Boessenkool

Aluminum is increasingly used in today's industry. This means that the demand for CNC milling of aluminum has only increased further. Even though aluminum is a fairly soft metal, alloying with small amounts of copper, magnesium, manganese and silicon can increase its strength enormously and with these additions it is strong, but still a lot lighter than, for example, steel. Partly because of this, aluminum is widely used in various industries and the demand for processing this metal has also grown. At Machinefabriek Boessenkool we can also mill your aluminum. Our experienced CNC millers will work very accurately for you to achieve the best intended result.
