2023 Best CNC Routers for Aluminum

Looking for a CNC router for aluminum fabrication? Check out the 2023 buying guide to a CNC router for aluminum. It's helpful for the CNC router beginners. You will find the best CNC routers for aluminum.

Aluminum (Aluminium) is a kind of soft metal that can be carved with text and pattern by a CNC router machine, it can also be cut into different shapes. The premise is that the CNC router must be equipped with CNC router bits for aluminum, which is different from CNC router tools for woodworking.

There are many kinds of CNC routers for aluminium fabrication, how to choose a right CNC router machine for aluminum? All depends on your requirements.

Is a CNC Router Easy to Cut Aluminum?

Of course, a common CNC router equipped with T-Slot table and solid carbide CNC router bits can easily cut aluminum. For better cutting results, you should first find optimal settings working best on aluminum.

How to Use CNC Router for Aluminum?

1. Design and layout according to customer requirements, calculate the path correctly, and save the file.
2. Copy the file to the DSP controller. (If using a control card machine, please open the control card software, read in the layout, and save the file).
3. Fix the aluminum material, define the origin, start the spindle, and adjust the spindle speed.
4. Turn on the power, the machine performs a reset self-test, the X, Y, and Z axes return to the zero point, and then run to their initial positions.
5. Adjust the X, Y, and Z axes separately, align with the origin of the routing work, and adjust the spindle speed, feed speed, and Z axis height to make the machine enter the work waiting state.
6. Open the CNC file, transfer the file to the CNC router, and the routing work of the file can be completed automatically.
7. When the routing ends, the machine will automatically raise the tool and run to the top of the work start point.

What are the best CNC Router Bits for Aluminum?

When a CNC router working with aluminum, we should use end mills, which are made of either carbide or HSS (high-speed steel). End mills have advantages of high precision and not easy to break. End mills have many styles, sizes and flutes, including single flute carbide end mill and double flute carbide end mill. Typically, more flutes, better quality.

What are the Differences Between Laser Cutter and CNC Router for Cutting Aluminum?

One is to use a laser and the other is to cut with a tool, each with its own advantages. Laser cutting machine has higher cutting speed and higher efficiency, but the price is also higher. The price of CNC router machine is relatively low, all depends on your requirements. CNC router cutting aluminum is feasible, it can not only cut aluminum, but also cut copper, acrylic board, wooden board and other materials.
