What Is Aluminium and Non-Ferrous Metal Machining?

To casual observers, machining or milling aluminium can appear to be a straightforward process. It can be easy to think that, like any other metal, working with aluminium requires a sharp and balanced tool for high speed and medium feed cutting.

However, aluminium and non-ferrous metals like copper and nickel are softer and more malleable compared to steel. This means they require less cutting force, with the milling tool’s cutting edge experiencing lower mechanical loading.

Machining aluminium alloys also requires knowing their specific grade, which determines their hardness, corrosion resistance and mechanical properties that affect their machinability. For instance, high silicon aluminium alloys have highly abrasive properties and require carbide milling tools for their superior abrasion resistance.

What Type of Cutter Is Used for Milling Aluminium and Non-Ferrous Metals?

The soft and malleable properties of aluminium necessitate milling cutters with specific geometries and characteristics. It’s why so many manufacturers provide different types of cutting tools specifically designed for machining aluminium and soft non-ferrous metals. There’s no single tool that’s right for every job.

For example, high rake angles up to 20 degrees axial and 25 degrees radial are ideal for separating a chip from the aluminium workpiece. And while many machinists still follow the rule of thumb of using two flutes for machining aluminium and non-ferrous materials to reduce vibrations, recent innovations have led to the manufacturing of three- and four-flute milling cutters for higher productivity.

At Milo Tools, our milling cutters for machining aluminium and non-ferrous come in a full range of flute options, lengths, profiles and cutting lengths. You’re guaranteed to find the right tool to machine any custom aluminium part according to your needs.
