Aluminium is the preferred choice of material for a large variety of fabricated goods. There is a reason it’s called the wonder metal.
This is a metal that is strong, flexible, light, corrosion resistant and conductive of electricity and heat. Magnetic powers do not affect the metal either. As with most materials there are also downfalls when it comes to this metal, one of them being the aforesaid features, such as the metal transferring heat extremely fast, which heightens the risk of getting burnt in the fabrication process if you are not careful.The most experienced aluminium fabricators sometimes have difficulty working with aluminium because it is so flexible.
If you are in the aluminium fabrication industry you will know that a bigger hole will be needed for aluminium welding as it will expand more than steel does. It is important to keep the gun cable straight and to ensure that the brake tension on the aluminium wire is set loosely.
Aluminium is now shaped by metal fabricators for a wide variety of functions. Making use of fabrication techniques such as stamping, cutting and CNC machining, creating anything from packaging, computer parts, home appliances and nautical components. Due to the popularity of this material there are many institutions that offer recycling services, effectively reducing wastage.
