What is the difference between CNC machining and die-casting of aluminum housing? Which process is better?
Production of electronic products aluminum casing usually need to find a professional regular aluminum casing manufacturer for custom processing, since different brands and types of products for the aluminum shell of the requirements are different. Specific manifestations in shape, size and appearance treatment. Those who have been exposed to the processing of aluminum shells will know that there are two processing processes in the industry:
That is CNC machining and die-casting. Both are technologies that process raw materials into products, but many people don't know much about both. Here we take a look at the difference with CNC machining and die-cast aluminum housing processing.
CNC machining refers to CNC machining, which is precision machining under the digital control of a computer. The aluminum casing can achieve some extremely special or complex surface treatments under this processing technology. Such as chamfering, non-penetrating patterns or texture carving, punching treatment at the bend of aluminum casing, surface treatment of non-flat surface, etc. It can be said that even the most demanding and difficult to handle details can be completed under the processing of CNC processing. For those who have personalized and extremely high requirements for the processing of aluminum casings, it is unavoidable to use this type.
The die-casting process uses the mold cavity to apply high pressure to the molten metal to form a surface effect similar to the mold. Some simple punching and patterning work can be performed under the die-casting process. Compared with CNC machining, the cost is lower, but it can not perform extremely complicated surface treatment.
These two kinds of processing methods of aluminum casing have their own characteristics, which are indispensable skills of aluminum casing processing manufacturers in production and operation. The two can achieve complementary effects, allowing manufacturers to provide customers with better services. Of course, not as many people think, CNC machining is the best. In order to produce and process qualified aluminum casings, the corresponding processing technology must be selected according to its production needs, and production costs must also be considered. In the case where both processing techniques are feasible, naturally which one is more convenient and preferential, choose which one, rather than which one looks better, choose which one, after all, cost is always a part we cannot ignore. .
Before the current customers produce and process the aluminum casing, they will develop detailed and appropriate processing plans for the customers. It not only ensures that every production requirement of the product can be met, but also ensures that production costs are minimized, so as to provide refined and qualified aluminum casing products and meticulous services.
