Machining: Aluminium alloys with similiar machinability

When one considers the extremely large differences between the properties of individual aluminium alloys and their related effects on the machinability, it becomes clear that it would be too complex and thus impossible to plan a machining process completely. However, as a starting point it is advisable to divide the broad range of different aluminium alloys into groups having the same or at least similar machinability:
