Aluminum Aircraft Parts in 2022

Aircraft or better known as Airplanes are large, very large. They are large because they are designed to carry things, lots of things. Airplanes carry mail, gifts, shipments, food, packages, baggage, and people. Airplanes are the fastest transportation for “things” and people today. Airplanes are fast because they travel through the air. Because airplanes are big and travel through the air, airplane construction materials need to lightweight and strong. Aluminum is used for most airplane components because it is lightweight and strong. The overall airplane part weight is kept down so the airplane will be able to carry more “things”. Therefore, aluminum is used a lot.

Die casting is the preferred manufacturing process for making Aluminum Aircraft Parts. The reason is that the aluminum die casting process has a lot of advantages over other high-volume aircraft part manufacturing processes.

    Aluminum Aircraft Parts Produced as Die Castings:

  1. Die Casting is less expensive because more than 500 or 1,000 parts can be produced each day.
  2. Die Casting hold tolerance typically to +/- 0.002″ after the die casting tool is approved.
  3. Aluminum weighs 1/3 by volume of a similar part in steel.
  4. Aluminum die casting parts are very strong.
  5. Die Castings are produced near “net shape”, reducing additional manufacturing costs.
  6. Die Casting Tooling reliably manufactures parts repeatably over several thousand parts.
  7. Aluminum die castings do not break down over time as other materials break down.
  8. Aluminum die castings have an aesthetically pleasing surface finish.
  9. Die Casting parts look good after paint or polish.

    The Advantages of Aluminum Chassis Casting Over Steel in 2022

    The Advantages of Aluminum Chassis Castings Over Steel. High pressure die casting is the process used to make aluminum die cast parts and chassis castings. This process is now becoming more and more popular in several major manufacturing industries because of its many advantages.

    Aluminum is a great metal to work with. Unlike other metals, it has plenty of strengths. The metal can be found almost everywhere in the planet. Supply will not run out, so it is easy to acquire and not heavy on your pockets.

    Advantages of aluminum chassis castings over steel include:

    • Aluminum can be stronger than steel
    • three times greater axial load strength
    • Faster production rate. In fact, production quantities can be done within a few days instead of several weeks!
    • Fewer failures and returns to the OEM
    • Weight is lighter by two and a half times for lesser shipping costs
    • Less finishing costs
    • Raw parts manufacturing costs are much less
    • Better looking parts

    You can produce aluminum die casts according to your preference and specifications, such as the trim, clean, machine, inspect, powder coat and the package of your aluminum cast parts.

    All in all, the use of aluminum castings over still helps you reduce weight, boost strength, and save you more money.
