E.J. Basler has been a premier manufacturer of precision machined aluminum components. Combining our industry expertise with our precision aluminum machining services, we fabricate complex aluminum parts for a wide range of applications and industries, including electronics, medical, military, and automotive. We have experience working with various aluminum grades and can recommend a specific one that will best meet your part requirements. We offer a wide range of state-of-art machining and secondary processes, including CNC, Swiss, Acme, multi-spindle, Davenport, and Hydromat, that offer advantages such as higher machining speed, close dimensional and form tolerances, improved surface finish, reduced material waste, and longer tool life. We can quickly produce precision machined aluminum parts and components that meet strict requirements and specifications with fast cycle times and a high level of accuracy and repeatability.


Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the world being found in various forms from rocks to vegetation but never raw as the metal that we know. This highly machinable metal has a very low Brinell hardness level and therefore is easy to machine. It is additionally an exceptionally light material which can help for overall weight of part and decrease added carbon emissions attributed to it.


The following are some of the physical and mechanical properties that makes aluminum and aluminum alloys a commonly used material for machined parts and products.

  • Low density compared to other steels and copper
  • Higher feed speeds increase productivity and profitability due to malleability and low hardness level of part
  • Thermal and electrical conductor-60% as conductive as Copper while being 30% as dense
  • Highly polished surface with a bright, silver color for added cosmetic and aesthetic appeal
  • Completely recyclable for highly sustainable machining


The numerous advantages and benefits of aluminum makes it a preferred material for precision CNC, Swiss, and other machining techniques. E.J. Basler can machine parts, components, and products for virtually any application or industry, including but not limited to the following:
