CNC Machining Brass Parts
Brass is a popular material for CNC machining due to its high machinability, corrosion resistance, and attractive appearance.
Brass is a metal alloy made of copper and zinc. is a durable, corrosion resistant and highly recyclable material. It has a wide range of applications including musical instruments, plumbing fittings, decorations, electrical connectors and various mechanical components.
We often use CNC machined grades of brass
C26000 (Cartridge Brass): This is a popular brass alloy that contains 70% copper and 30% zinc. It has good strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance, and is often used in the manufacture of ammunition casings, plumbing fixtures, and automotive parts.
C36000 (Free-Cutting Brass): This is a leaded brass alloy that is known for its excellent machinability. It contains 61% copper, 35% zinc, and 3% lead, and is often used in the manufacture of electrical components, fasteners, and fittings.
Brass is a versatile material that is used in a wide range of applications across various industries. Here are some of the common applications of brass:
- Pipes and plumbing fittings: valves and taps for plumbing systems.
- Electrical components: electrical components such as connectors, switches, and terminals.
- Instruments: Common material for instruments such as trumpets, trombones, and saxophones.
- Marine Applications: Popular choice for marine applications such as propeller shafts, pumps and valves.
- Industrial machinery: gears, bearings, bushings and other industrial machinery components.
Brass is a popular material for decorative objects and fixtures due to its attractive appearance. There are several different finishes that can be applied to brass to enhance its appearance and protect it from corrosion. Here are some of the common brass finishes:
