Why Should You Use Aluminum Military Parts? Many of the government’s military equipment and weapons are manufactured and made with aluminum parts or die casting parts. There are many advantages when using aluminum to create military parts, and in this article, the most common advantages will be enumerated and explained.
- When forging the military parts using aluminum, the manufacturers are able to produce more complex parts with thinner walls and sections, low finishing costs, and have coring that is normally not feasible in forging. This means that one is able to produce parts that are more difficult than their predecessors but are more tolerable, durable, and of course less costly.
- Aluminum is a more durable, stronger, and more dimensionally stable alloy to use than when using plastic moldings to create military parts. This is because aluminum parts are able to prevent radio frequency, electromagnetic emissions, and other possible effects that could damage the parts. So if you want your military equipment to remain stable and strong despite constant use, this is the kind of alloy and the kind of molding to be used.
- Normally extrusions are used to produce the parts and to give it shape, but with aluminum die casting, the parts are produced faster in terms of speed and with more net shape than usual.
