Materials

The amazing advances in both CNC technology and material development allow almost any material needed for today’s products to be CNC machined in an efficient manner. Some of the most common materials are Carbon and Stainless Steel, Aluminum, and Plastic. DFAR certified suppliers are available for defense or military contracts.

Aluminum is one of the most common materials used in the manufacturing sector because of the many benefits it offers in a large variety of applications.


Benefits:

-Durability: corrosion resistant, non-flammable

-Flexibility: can be shaped and machined easily

-Lightweight

-High strength-to-weight ratio

-Non-magnetic

-Large choice of finishes

-Recyclability


Alloys:

2011    2024    6061    7075

The use of Carbon Steel dates back to ancient times. It is harder and stronger than Stainless Steel. There are several types of carbon steel, such as low, medium, high and ultra-high carbon steel. These refer to the carbon content of the steels. The type of carbon steel that is best varies depending on the use.


Benefits:

-Durable: strong and shock resistant

-Safe: to handle and machine

-Economical

-Recyclability


Alloys:

12L14    1010    1018    1045    1144    1215

Aircraft Alloys offer a good combination of strength and shock resistance.


Benefits:

-Heat-treated for high strength

-Shock-resistant on parts under heavy stress

-Vacuum arc-remelted for purity

 

Alloys:

4130    4140    4340

Stainless steel is heavily utilized in the medical and aerospace sectors because of a number of advantages in comparison to other materials.


Benefits:

-Higher oxidation rate

-Higher heat resistance

-Resistant to corrosion

-Low maintenance- surface finishes unnecessary

 

Alloys:

303    304    316    410    420    416    430    440    455    13-8    15-5    17-4    Nitronic 60

Copper is known for its outstanding conductivity, both electrical and thermal. For these reasons they are used heavily in the electronic and communication sectors.


Benefits:

-Excellent electrical and thermal conductivity

-Durable and strong

-Ductile: easy to machine

-Resistant to corrosion

Alloys:

101    110    145    187

Brass and Bronze are two copper-based alloys that offer a variety of characteristics suitable for a wide range of applications.


Benefits:

-Durable and strong

-Ductile: easy to machine

-Resistant to corrosion


Alloys:

360    464    510    544    630    642

With high strength, consistent reliability, and the ability to be manufactured to the same tight tolerances as metal, plastic parts can offer numerous benefits to companies across all types of industries.


Benefits:

-Can have higher tensile strength vs. many types of metal

-Reduced part weight

-Reduced manufacturing costs

-Superior design flexibility

-Reduced waste

-Faster manufacturing times

-Resistant to corrosion


Types:

ABS    Delrin/Acetal    HDPE    Kel-F    Nylon    Peek    Polycarbonate    PTFE    PVC    Torlon    UNMW    Ultem    Vespel
