Aluminum Milled and Hard Anodized Parts

Project Overview:

Manufacturing Process: CNC Machining
Material: Aluminum 6061-T6
Surface Finishing: Laser Engraving, Hard Anodizing, Glossy Painting
Quantity: 50 Pieces
Lead Time: 12 Days

Customer was from Australia and ordered this 50 aluminum parts for their fluid system. Painting three glossy colors of Red, Black, Blue on laser engraved Logo & Text was a difficulty. Compared to common anodizing, hard anodizing provided stronger abrasion & corrosion resistance.
Manufacturing Step By Step:

CNC machining aluminum parts. Strong cutting capability got the aluminum parts milled at tight tolerance, smooth milled surface and the milling time as short as possible. An ABS fixture was used to assist the machining.

CNC Aluminum Milled PartsCNC milled parts. The smooth milled surface reduced or eliminated hands sanding to remove cutting lines, which saved production time and cost.
Aluminum Hard Anodized PartsLaser engraved and hard anodized parts. Hard anodizing could improve the surface smoothness by removing the minor manufacturing marks.
Aluminum Painted PartsThree glossy colors painted on the Logo. Painting different colors on one same surface was a difficulty, which required excellent painting capability.
CNC Aluminum PartsPackaging the parts for delivery. Each part was carefully quality checked and then packaged by a foam bag for safe transportation.
