Various metals often require a machining process to meet a specific need. These include plastic, steel, iron, and bronze but one of the most versatile and often used metals is aluminum due to its cost, durability, resistance to corrosion, and its lightweight.
Aluminum machining is often desired by the customers of JBC Machine in a variety of industries. With over 30 years of experience in working with aluminum, the company has both the experience and the equipment to provide any machine shop requirements.
While aluminum doesn’t require additional finishing after the machine work, due to its natural resistance to corrosion, as well as the aesthetics of its appearance in a raw state the facility can provide anodizing services, chemical conversion coating, painting or any other type of finishing the customer desires.
The company’s commitment to staying up to date with the latest equipment and software, as well as training for its employees, enable it to provide a variety of aluminum machining work. If the customer requires aluminum turning work, then it can be accomplished through on-site equipment such as engine lathes, CNC lathes, or 5 axis Mori Seiki turning centers.
The shop can also provide threading services for aluminum on multiple machines, drilling aluminum on or off center, with straight drilling or drilling at almost any angle. If boring is required, then it can be performed in straight or conical bores as well as tapered or eccentric. In addition, due to the state of the art machinery and software, JBC Machine can program and produce quality 3D parts.
While, ideally, a complete design can be provided to the shop, in the case where an original design is not available and a broken part needs replacing, or an OEM part is not accessible, the shop can reverse engineer the part to the original exacting standards.
