Although it is one of the easiest materials to machine, safety remains a top priority for people who work in aluminum machining workshops. Traditional aluminum machining, which includes sawing, boring, tapping, turning, and custom aluminum milling, involves the use of powerful machinery. Unless properly operated, the risk of damage or injury is very real.
When machining aluminum, the feeds and speeds are extremely fast, which increases the potential of something going wrong. In comparison, a custom CNC machine does not pose as much risk since there is very little human involvement other than to enter the appropriate code. In other words, a custom CNC machine runs automatically based on the code it was provided. Even so, safety is critical since this too is a powerful type of machinery.
