6061 Aluminium Alloy Custom CNC Part

Aluminum alloy custom machined part in the medical field has the characteristics of easy disassembly and assembly, lightweight and certain strength.

Therefore, for a CNC machining parts supplier, aluminum alloy is generally selected to manufacture.

Today, Yijin Hardware is going to introduce this 6061 aluminum alloy custom-machined part, which is applied to the adapter of medical instruments. Let’s take a look.

Material: Aluminum alloy 6061

This 6061 aluminum alloy custom-machined part is a connector for use in the medical field.

Some medical tool rods need to be fitted or replaced with different sizes when they are under-length or the model is not applicable, while the 6061 aluminum alloy machined part is a key part of replacing the rod.

The two sections of the parts have different specifications of connection threads and three auxiliary through holes on the side.


The application of the connector

Suitable for occasions where thicker connected parts have poor strength and need to be disassembled frequently. Make external threads on the thick parts and twist the connectors into threaded holes.

When disassembling, only unscrew the connector without removing more parts, which can avoid damage to the threaded holes on the large connector.

What cooling method is better for CNC parts processing aluminum parts

Yijin Hardware has been engaged in CNC parts processing for 20 years and has rich experience in aluminum parts processing. It has deep cooperation and a good reputation with many large enterprises at home and abroad.

I think Yijin Hardware should be qualified to answer your question.

Well, back to the topic, the actual processing parameters have several major elements: spindle speed, tool diameter, tool feed (in XY and Z directions), and feed rate.

The factors that affect the processing parameters are the structure of the machine tool bed, the size of the spindle (BT30, BT40, BT50, etc.), the tool material used, the coolant is oil cold or water cold, aluminum appearance requirements, and so on…

CNC machine tool identifies hard rail and linear rails, hard rail rigidity is good, and suitable for steel, and rail professional processing aluminum parts which are only because of the fast-moving speed, but the rigidity is not as good as the handrails.

Therefore, the hard rail machine tool processing aluminum parts has an advantage over the linear rails in the amount of back-cutting (XY-direction) and bottom-cutting (z-direction) as well as the feed rate.

The CNC machining center is divided into BT30, BT40, and BT50 according to the size of the spindle taper hole, BT30 is the smallest, and BT50 is the largest.

The conical hole determines the size of the spindle and the rigidity of the spindle and also determines the size of the outer diameter of the tool holder, which is also the problem of rigidity.

Here determines the amount of XY direction and Z direction’s the tool cutting, the larger the spindle cone hole, the larger the handle, the better the rigidity, and the larger of the parameters can be given.

Besides the cooling system, oil cooling is the best, water cooling is the next, and air cooling is only used when needed. It also has an impact on processing parameters.

The stricter the customer’s requirements for appearance, the smaller the cutting amount, and the slower the feed will be…

For example, hard rail machine tool BT40 water cooling system, proofing or small batch production, 12 waveform cutter is commonly known as a rough cutter, S3500~5000 can cut 12mm in depth, XY can fit the cutter of 12mm, and F300~600 can be used.

Replaced with a linear machine tool, the XY can’t feed the full tool, the most feed is for 10mm.

Otherwise, the spindle of the machine tool will break quickly and the accuracy of each axis will drop quickly. The most important point is that the tool is easy to break.

Our company often uses BT40 line rail machine tool, the roughing parameters are light and fast, such as the shape of the general rough margin unilateral about 2mm, 16 rough leather cutter, S5000, F3000, Z-direction cutting 5mm one time, the sound is more brittle, and the efficiency is better.

With BT30, the speed and feed are the same, but it is better to reduce the Z-direction cutting by 1mm or so.

BT50 has not been used, maybe we can not give you a reference here, but the processing parameters should be increased some. Specific to the size of the tool diameter, I think the smaller the diameter is, the higher the speed is, the less the tooling is fed, and the slower the feed rate is. Because the amount of cutting tools exceeds the limit, no matter how fast the rotation speed, and how slow the feed will really be broken.

Manufacturing a custom machined part, just like this 6061 Aluminium Alloy custom machined part, is very important for the customer to provide specific drawings and requirements.

However, the ideas provided by CNC machining parts Suppliers are even more important. An experienced custom CNC machining supplier with processing ideas and processing procedures will help his customers save a lot of costs.

Is CNC machining expensive?

As for whether CNC machining is expensive, in fact, this point for those who often deal with CNC machining services suppliers should be very clear.

Whether the price of CNC machining is expensive or not, depends on the specific situation, such as demand, materials, and processing difficulty.

Therefore, do you have a clear concept of whether CNC machining is expensive?

CNC machining is an important manufacturing process where pre-programmed computer software is used.

It dictates the various movements of machinery and factory tools. The process is integral to the efficient working of any factory because it helps in controlling the functioning and movement of a range of complex machinery.

These could range from lathes to grinders and also routers. When you use the right CNC machining parts it is possible to perform complicated three-dimensional cutting jobs.

This can be done using a single set of commands and prompts. CNC actually stands for computer numerical control and this takes into account the limitations that exist as far as manual control is concerned.

Reduces Human Interface

It reduces the dependency on humans because live operators are required for guiding and prompting the various commands that need to be given to the machining tools.

Commands are also to be given to wheels, levers, and buttons.

For an ordinary onlooker who does not have too much understanding of CNC systems, this might look more like a regular set of computer accessories and components.

However, their real work is done by the consoles and software programs that are built into the machine.

They are capable of performing highly complex and difficult tasks without human intervention.

A Good CNC Machining Manufacturer Is Important

It would be pertinent to mention here that while there are a number of manufacturers of CNC Machines. But not all of them are considered to be the best.

If you are keen on getting the best out of these machines, it is important that you must choose the right manufacturers.

This is not easy given the fact that there are quite a few of them.

However, if you look for the right feedback and take information from big customers and end users of CNC machines and other CNC machining services, you will be able to identify a few such machining manufacturers.

One such name is Yijin Hardware. We are happy to introduce ourselves as one of the best CNC machining manufacturers and Service Providers.

We have over the years become one of the most well-known and respected manufacturers of different types of CNC machines and therefore it would be interesting to know more about the reasons as to why we are better than others.
