Angle roller bending carriage metal type

Simple question for anyone who’s ever worked with iron and aluminum alloys or other. Do you think 7075 aluminum would be strong enough for the bending carriage that moves up and down? Bearings for the carriage will be mounted in plates that bolt to the front and back of carriage for the die shaft and the aluminum will never touch any sliding surface bc I’m going to use wear strips or plates. The aluminum will have threaded hole to mount plates so the thread are what’s going to have a lot of the load. Thanks
