aluminum alloy

Aluminum Alloy

It is the most widely used non-ferrous metal structural material in the industry. Aluminum has advantages of high tensile strength, excellent plasticity, and light weight. Electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance are all excellent. Heat treatment can be used to improve the mechanical, physical, and corrosion resistance of some aluminium alloys.

Aerospace, automotive, machinery manufacturing, marine aluminium, and chemical sectors all use it.

Production Process: Sheet Metal Fabrication, CNC Machining, 3D Printing

LY12 (Hard Aluminum)

(LY12) is a typical hard aluminium alloy with good overall qualities in the aluminium-copper-magnesium system. The alloy has a good strength to heat resistance ratio. At temperatures below 150 degrees Celsius, it can be used as working components. It’s used in a variety of places, such as aeroplane constructions, propeller components, rivets, automotive hubs, and other structural elements.

ly12 hard aluminum


Copper and zinc alloy with excellent strength and wear resistance. Most brass has a pleasant hue, is easy to process, and is ductile. It is also simple to plate or apply.

Jewelry, sculpting, and gold and silver printing testing are all possible applications. Brass is used in the places where screws are used for the coupling pieces.

Manufacturing process: CNC Machining, Injection mould

Aluminum (General)

Aluminum with a high purity level is ductile. It can be rolled into very thin aluminium foil or very fine aluminium wire in most cases. The high-purity aluminium has a smooth surface with no impurities and a clean surface with clear crystal grain. It has a high degree of plasticity, a low degree of deformation resistance, and a high electrical conductivity.

Scientific research, electronics, chemical industries, fabrication of high-purity alloys, laser materials, and other unique applications are the most common uses.

al mg alloy

Al Mg Alloy

Lightweight Al-Mg alloy aluminium sheet has a low density, good heat dissipation, and high compression resistance. It can fully meet the demands of 3C goods in terms of high integration, lightness, miniaturisation, anti-collision, electromagnetic shielding, and heat dissipation. It is commonly utilised in the field of 3D manufacturing.

Production process: CNC Machining

Purple Copper

Copper is a type of relatively pure copper that can be termed pure copper in general. It has greater conductivity and plasticity, but less strength and hardness. Copper has excellent heat conductivity, ductility, and corrosion resistance. It’s frequently used in the creation of conductive and heat-conductive devices.

magnesium alloy

Magnesium Alloy

It is the lightest. It possesses high strength, rigidity, dimensional stability, impact resistance, wear resistance, good heat dissipation, good conductivity and thermal conductivity, and effective shock absorption, among other features. Poor corrosion resistance, rapid oxidation, and heat resistance are some of its drawbacks. To achieve the goal of lightweight, it is now frequently employed in portable equipment and the vehicle industry.

Production process: CNC Machining

Zinc Alloy

Zinc alloy has a low melting point, good fluidity, easy melting and welding, brazing and plastic processing, good casting performance, complex shape and thin-walled precision castings can be die-cast, smooth surface of castings, surface treatment can be done; however, it has poor corrosion resistance, low creep strength, and is easily changed size due to natural ageing. Die-casting instruments, automobile components shells, and other die-casting applications are all possible.

stainless steel

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is made by alloying iron (Fe) with chromium (> 12 percent) and nickel (nickel) alloys to resist corrosion in air or chemical corrosive media. It has outstanding corrosion resistance, weldability, and heat resistance, among other characteristics. It’s widely employed in a variety of industries, including household appliances, vehicle production, aircraft, medical equipment, and others.
